While trout fishing in the rest of the basin is closed, the Rogue and tributaries above Lost Creek Reservoir remain open year-round, with a retention limit of 5 trout. Stocked trout in this reach are not fin clipped. 

The Hwy 62 webcam at Union Creek is always a good resource to check before driving up here. With spring conditions in the forecast, the water temperatures may start to raise a bit and putting some holdover trout that are still in the area on the bite. There are also brown and cutthroat trout that can be found in the tributaries above Lost creek Reservoir.  

More information on Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest lands can be found on their website or calling the RRSNF office.  

Stocking is not scheduled to begin until just before Memorial Day. All tributaries above Lost Creek Reservoir are open year-round with a 5 trout limit.

With very cold water, presentation is usually the key, get your bait down and free drifting with as little drag as possible. Also plan on fishing later in the day when temperatures may be warmer. Last updated 3/31/21.

SIXES RIVER:

Closed to all fishing until May 22.

SMITH RIVER, Umpqua: steelhead, striped bass

Steelhead season should be winding down, but there should be a few fish left. 

Striped bass season is coming on and there should be some hungry fish around. 

Trout season reopens May 22. 

The Smith sees only light pressure for most of the season and can provide a great experience for anglers looking to get away from the crowds. Last updated 4/7/21

SPALDING POND: rainbow trout

Spalding Pond is scheduled to receive 600 legal trout next week. Spalding Pond received a fingerling release last fall. These fish should grow all winter and be ready to catch this spring. There should be trout around. This area is within the Forest Service Wild Rivers Ranger District. Last updated 4/14/21.
