Rogue River- Upper (Above Lost Creek) Fish Report for 2-24-2022
Expect slow fishing and limited access with snow
Rogue River- Upper (Above Lost Creek) - Prospect, OR (Josephine County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Expect slow fishing and limited access with snow. The Rogue above Lost Creek received 3,500 rainbow trout weekly all summer. Stocking is over for the year, but there should still be rainbow trout available to target from Prospect to Minnehaha Creek.
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. There are also residential cutthroat and brown trout that are periodically hooked by anglers.
Great techniques up here include throwing small Panther Martin spinners or small hooks with a single Pautske fire egg under a bobber. You also can’t go wrong fishing nymphs up here, or nightcrawlers under a bobber. With very cold water, be looking for areas where fish are holding.
You’ll want to check the flows at prospect and above prospect if planning a trip up here. The USGS gages can be found here.
ODOT trip check maintains a camera at Union Creek (OR62), where you can get an idea of weather and road conditions.
More information on Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest lands can be found on their website or calling the RRSNF office.
