Form the mouth upstream to Fishers Ferry boat ramp, wild Chinook are legal for retention after June 1. As water conditions have remained pretty cool in the Grants Pass area, anglers are picking up fish here and there. Anglers are reminded that fishing is closed from Rainie Falls to 400 feet below the falls.

Trout fishing is again open. There is a 5 fish daily bag limit for adipose fin-clipped trout. Non-adipose fin-clipped trout must all be immediately released unharmed. All Rogue tributaries are closed unless noted in the exceptions.

Wild steelhead retention is now closed. Hatchery steelhead retention remains open, but for the most part the run is done. Trout anglers may get lucky and find themselves an early summer steelhead. 

The Grants Pass stream gauge is at 3680 cfs, 58 degreesand turbidity at 4 NTU.  Conditions are still very good for salmon fishing. Temperature is in the high 50s. Current flow, temp and turbidity conditions for the Rogue can be found at the USGS stream gauges here, or checking the City of Grants Pass water page’s river data here
