As predicted, the dropping river systems after a big long awaited rain event brought in good numbers of winter steelhead into all typical steelhead rivers and streams bringing steelhead anglers a "Winter Steelhead Delight" 🎣👏. Excellent catches on the Chetco earlier of 3-4 fish per rod was reported by pro guide Andy Martin (Wild Rivers Fishing) 😲😊 If you didn't get on it yet, you still have good opportunity for the weekend!

Winter steelhead numbers are increasing in the mid Rogue from Grave Creek up to Robertson Bridge with mostly wild fish in the mix. A few summer runs are still being caught although most are kelts. River flow throughout the system should be good for both bank and boat anglers into next week (although the upper is significantly on the low side of good). There's been some catches in the Applegate but predominately wild fish that must be released.... hatchery fish are coming!

If you didn't get a chance to hit the coastal "steelhead" rivers and streams earlier, good to excellent catches were reported from the Elk, Sixes, Chetco on up to the Coos system- Millicoma and Coos and North into the Umpqua system. The Elk and Sixes are pretty low now, so I'd hit the Chetco and up into the Umpqua systems for the best success.

Crabbing in the bays and ocean look to be an opportunity as well as bottom fishing for rock fish and lings are also on the menu for the weekend.

Surf perch are biting along the rocky jetty's and sandy beaches too!
