About ready to pull the plug on what has been an extremely limited winter steelhead season on the upper Rogue. Flows continued to go in the wrong direction last week and today finally look stable. Unfortunately, too much flow continues to push through the dam and, with all the snow in the mountains above Lost Creek Reservoir, I cannot imagine any major change will occur soon.
On the bright side, the tributary creeks look really good and I imagine them full of spawning, wild steelhead with plenty of cold water this spring and summer to help out the juveniles.
Will be heading over to the Williamson River June through August for lake run rainbows and then back on the Rogue September 1. Hope to see you in S. Oregon soon.
