Rogue River - Middle Fish Report for 1-19-2023
Summer steelhead are still being caught
Rogue River - Middle - Grants Pass, OR (Josephine County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Current flow is around 2,000 cfs and temperature in the low-40s F.
Summer steelhead are still being caught, but many of these fish will be pushing up into tributaries soon. Trout fishing is open with a 5 fish daily bag limit for adipose fin-clipped (hatchery) trout. Non-adipose fin-clipped trout must all be immediately released unharmed.
Some early winter steelhead are being caught below Grants Pass. With flows holding somewhat steady, side drifting, lures, or flies are all effective. Dial back brightness and size of presentation as water levels drop and clear.
Wild winter steelhead over 24 inches may be harvested upstream of Hog Creek boat ramp starting February 1 (1 per day, 3 per season). Please check out MyODFW for info on new validation and harvest tag requirements in the Rogue and South Coast Rivers.
