Rogue River - Middle Fish Report for 5-26-2021
Middle Rogue River Report
Rogue River - Middle - Grants Pass, OR (Josephine County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Currently only hatchery steelhead and hatchery spring Chinook may be harvested in the Rogue. But fishing for both may be better in the upper section of the river.
The annual Boatnik Festival will be underway this Memorial Day weekend. It would probably be best to plan on fishing around the Galice area or in the upper River starting around Gold Hill to Rogue River, or further upstream.
Locally-owned and operated tackle and fly shops in Grants Pass have excellent gear and very fresh bait, local flies and knowledge that is specific to the Rogue and to your particular technique. Go check them out and offer them support during this time.
It is illegal to snag and keep a snagged fish, whether it’s wild or hatchery! Report violations to Oregon State Police by calling *OSP.
Wednesday morning the flow was 2,270cfs, turbidity was 3 NTU and water temps ranging from the mid-50s to low 60s.
For those interested in checking conditions before getting on the river, the City of Grants Pass Water Division’s website offers information on river conditions at Grants Pass as well as a link to a river camera. Anglers can check all the USGS gaging stations, which have the most current temperatures and river flows here.
