The biggest news to report from the upper Rogue River and S. Oregon comes in the form of lower flows and a substantial cool down. On the 2nd, flows dropped below 2000 cfs and stabilized around 1600 at Dodge Bridge. Air temperatures dipped below 100 and look to stay sub 90 throughout the 7-day forecast. This welcome change will, at the very least, make for more pleasant conditions and should improve the bite. Steelhead remain scattered throughout the upper river and getting up early or fishing the evening makes a difference. We’re just getting started on the upper Rogue and eagerly anticipate what lies ahead.
