Rogue River reports

Jeff Bacon (flyfishwestmichigan) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: The Rogue river, just north of Grand Rapids, fished pretty good for steelhead for a couple days here as of late. Have not hooked a lake run brown in the Rogue this winter myself, but have friends/guides/fellow anglers who have. The river is just now coming down after running very high for a week+. Flows still above avg - 314 cfs, normal is 220, but by no means raging like it was. With cold snap coming, I'm sure it will really slow down and shelf ice will form. That said, this smaller river can and does change quickly with a day+ of warm temps and/or good sun during mid-late portion of the day. (01/09/09)
Jeff Bacon (flyfishwestmichigan) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: With recent warm weather and related snow melt, the Rogue river, just north of Grand Rapids, did get additional steelhead into the system. By no means a "bunch" in the Rogue at this time, but certainly enough to wet a line with a decent chance of hooking up. Some lake run brown trout are in as well. (12/26/08)

Rogue River descriptions

Andy Idema (aidema) wrote - The lower river gets more pressure due to the steelhead run that takes place below the dam every winter and spring. The upper river is more of a trout stream. (06/07/08)

The river above the dam is good until it wars up. It is stocked and there are some good above the dam. 12 mile and Summit is a fantastic place to teach fly fishing. It's a good place to send an evening if you can't head North ot the white or the PM. (1/19/13)

I'm new to the GR area and have some questions about the Rogue. Can anyone tell me when the salmon run starts and where some good spots to fish are. I'm just getting back into fly fishing, and i'm not that good. Any help is much apreciated. Cheers (1/19/13)
