I have to go down into California next week and I'll be driving back on Friday. I want to stop somewhere in southern Oregon, camp, and work on my (absolute beginner) fly-fishing skills.

Anyone have some suggestions? I'll be on the I-5 corridor but I can vary a ways from it if needed.

The Rogue has an excellent trout fishery. And some bigguns(salmon/steel) too. Go to one of the parks and talk to some of the old timers. They were all (the ones I met) real nice to this long hair! I was there at a totally different time targeting steel (DIDN`T CATCH ONE) so that`s about all I can tell ya.

Hog Creek and Indian Mary look like potential spots (I don't need accommodations, just a parking spot). Thanks!

you could try the holy water, its fly fishing only. its the water on the rogue between the hatchery and dam of lost creek lake.

no steelhead or salmon will be in there, but i hear some of the trout are steelhead size :D

I know its about 45 minutes off the 5 but the Holy Water is something that must be experienced by all fly fisherman.

Holy Water is sounding like a winner. If I'm looking at the right map, it seems the hatchery is just below the dam, before McGregor park. Is that correct?

Anyone know what it's like to stop in overnight around there? River's edge park, McGregor park, Casey state park?

That is correct. Im not sure if u can camp at Casey it may be day use only, i know its a free area, where as other parks on the river u have to pay.

If u want message me when you are here and i can show u some good water, although i fish mainly lakes and i use spinning gear :D

I just need space for my truck. And even that isn't critical. I can hike it in a ways. Space on the ground about 3 foot by 6 foot and I'm just cozy.
