We have just completed our first Rogue canyon fishing trip, which started September 2-4. Due to the removal of Gold Ray Dam located up River of Medford the river at this time is running high and a little off-color.
The information that we have been able to gather tells us that the project will be complete by mid-sept. and river flow should be down to normal levels. I was pleasantly surprised the fishing was good, even with the higher flow and not prefect water-color. We caught quite a few adult steelhead and a good number of half pounder steelhead.
The weather was perfect with highs around 90 degree and the water temperature 62 degrees. We fished flies in the shade and plugs in the sun, both methods worked well with flies being a little more productive than the plugs. Our next trip starts on Sept. 7th – 9th and we are look forward to another great trip.
We have a few seats open for the 2010 Rogue Canyon fishing. Give us a call and lets see if we can get you booked. Check the website for dates www.rrotrips.com
