Klamath River Fly Fishing Report

Rick Cox reports on 9.28.18

The Klamath and Rogue River 

Wild Waters guides recently did a recon to the Lower Klamath to checkout the steelhead run. To their pleasant surprise the lower river showed a very strong steelhead presence with numerous pods of them moving through.

We experienced some double-digit days with a mix of half-pounders and adults. I don’t want to get too cocky but hang on to your...

Rogue River Fly Fishing Report

Jim Andras reports on 5.17.18

As the Rogue’s trout season opens next Tuesday, I took a scenic float to check out what’s happening on the upper river.  Water levels and clarity are really good and sunshine brought out the bugs. 

Caddis, mayflies, and stones all got active and salmon flies started flying mid-morning. Observed several fish take the big bugs aggressively and that speaks well to a great...

Rogue River Fly Fishing Report

John Rickard reports on 5.10.18

Rogue River

Like the Klamath, the Rogue is all about the big bug. Far more popular of a Salmonfly hatch is the “Holy Water” on the Rogue. Ample walk n’ wade spots are available, but many anglers take a seasonal pilgrimage to these waters and it is likely you’ll see fellow fisherman in your favorite spots. 

The drift boat can offer a great way to float the upper...

Rogue River

The Rogue River features a phenomenal Golden Stone and Salmonfly hatch which sees little attention but only because it’s simply overshadowed by the arrival of Spring Chinook. We relish this inattention because it affords fly fishermen in the know non-stop dry fly fishing to eager trout on a beautiful river in early summer. What could be better?

Coastal Steelhead Fly Fishing Report

Rick Cox reports on 4.12.18

Smith, Rogue, and The Umpqua

Coastal Steelhead fishing is coming to an end, but it’s not over yet.  It’s Spring, we’ve been fishing in T-shirts and been fishing in Snow.  Last couple of weeks we spent days on the Smith, the Rogue system, and the Umpqua rivers.

Some upriver fish are still being caught but the end is near. It’s been a very good year for us on the coast,...

Rogue River Fly Fishing Reports

Jim Andras reports on 3.9.2018

The upper Rogue continues to fish well. This week brought more winter fish upstream and a slow snowmelt greened up the water perfectly. There are fish headed both directions and that will likely continue through the month. However, from what I saw earlier this week it feels like our winter season’s finally gettin’ going. Thank you for staying interested in the Rogue...

Rogue River Fly Fishing Report

Jim Andras Reports on 3.1.2017

What a difference a little rain makes:


The upper Rogue continued to fish well this week. Still seeing mostly late summer fish with a few winters in the mix with an adipose fin on almost every one. Winter finally arrived this morning with snow in Talent and high temps predicted to stay in the 40’s over the next ten days. Aside from a few showers, precipitation looks...

Rogue River Fly Fishing Report

Jim Andras reports on 2.8.2018

I understand that fly fishing in winter does not appeal to everyone. Compared to fall, anglers face greater variability in weather and water that can create less comfortable conditions and heighten the challenge. For some, thoughts of winter conditions and shiny steelhead circulate continuously throughout the year in anticipation of their arrival. Well, they’re here....

Rogue River Fly Fishing Report

Jim Andras Reports on 1.18.2017

More unseasonably warm and dry weather this week in S. Oregon continues to keep the upper Rogue flowing low and clear. Fortunately, we’re now seeing a mix of late summer and winter steelhead in the system. As is the case every year, my season slows down considerably after Thanksgiving even though the Rogue supports a robust winter run of almost entirely wild fish....
