A note from Craig about the Rogue River Fishery:
“Hello, I hope this finds you well. I wanted to inform you about the steelhead infestation the Rogue River is experiencing at this time.
ODFW has a seine net that they operate 3 days a week 8 miles upriver from Gold Beach. This net catches a very small percentage of migrating fish about 2%, but it allows ODFW to tag,scale sample and estimate run size. The 10 year average on half pounders is 1239 counted through Nov. 1st at this point they have counted 1672 as of August 7th. Adult steelhead 10 year average is 318 and of August 7th there has been 92, remember those counts only reflect about 2% of the annual numbers.
Peek counts occur in early September and good numbers of fish are counted thru Oct.
In short this is going to be an amazing steelhead fishing season, we still have a few open dates available for this season; Sept 2-4, Sept 7-9, Sept 17-19, and Oct 22-24. I hope you can enjoy what looks to be a record breaking steelhead season.”
Give Tina a call and lets go fishing! 🙂
