As many of you know when it comes to fish management and fish predictions The Rogue River is clustered with the Northern California Rivers at about Cape Blanco the fish runs split and tend to migrate two different directions.
Last year all of the central and Northern coast rivers had great returns of fall chinook, while Northern California and Southern Oregon were still slow. Fishery biologists have predicted an 800,000 salmon return for the Sacramento and Klamath rivers and 300,000 salmon for the Rogue River. This would be about three times greater than average for the Rogue and historically when Northern California rivers have good runs of salmon the Rogue has a great run.
I am really excited for this fall and we should have fishing like the good ol days.
