Rogue River- Lower - Gold Beach, OR

“Spring salmon fishing has been decent on the lower Rogue, with plenty of hatchery fish showing up,” said Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing. “Bank anglers are plunking with 4.0 MagLips and catching springers as they swim upstream close to shore. Boaters are anchoring with anchovies and spinner blades. A few late-season steelhead also are being caught by springer anglers. The Chetco, Elk and Sixes are closed for the season.”
