With hot temperatures in the Rogue Valley, the upper river above Lost Creek is a great destination for the trout angler. Trout stockings in the upper river started May 18 and will continue weekly through Labor Day in this popular summer destination. Due to changes in low reservoirs in the Rogue district, the upper river will be receiving 3,500 trout weekly instead of the normal 2,500 fish.

The USFS has all of the developed campgrounds open. You can learn more about this and all the upper Rogue facilities, trails, and any fire restrictions on the Rogue River Siskiyou National Forest website or calling their office.  

The Rogue and tributaries above Lost Creek Reservoir remain open year-round, with a daily retention limit of 5 trout. Stocked rainbow trout in this reach are not fin-clipped. There are also cutthroat, brown trout and even the occasional brook trout that are periodically hooked by anglers.
