Illinois River Report

Illinois River - Cave Junction, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The Kerby guage was reading 183 cfs, low and clear.

The Illinois River is currently open for trout fishing and hatchery steelhead. Only artificial flys and lures are allowed. Since there is no hatchery on the Illinois, the fishery is primarily catch-and-release for wild trout, as retention in not allowed

Later in the summer, hatchery steelhead and half-pounders have been known to nose into the lower few miles of the Illinois, near Agness, particularly if the Rogue is running warmer.  Half-pounders don’t typically show in the Rogue until mid-August.
