Upper Rogue River Report

Rogue River- Upper - Medford, OR (Jackson County)

by Fish Reports Staff

Wild steelhead can now be retained in the entire Rogue basin, as long as the fish is a minimum of 24 inches long.  Only 1 wild fish per day, and 3 per year zone wide in aggregate may be kept. Wild trout must still be released. 

Trout anglers are especially encouraged to harvest adipose-fin clipped trout in the upper reach of river.

As of Jan. 26, 11 new summer steelhead entered the hatchery, bringing the total to 1,778 summer fish for the year. Zero winter steelhead entered the ladder. At the writing of this report, the pond had not yet been gone through. However, some winter fish have been caught around the hatchery hole as of late, and it’s expected that winter fish should be in the collection this week.

The collection pond is typically sorted on Wednesdays, and new numbers are typically available to the public later in the week. Call into the Lost Creek Reservoir hotline or check the MyODFW.com fish counts page.
