Contributor Jeff Rome reports:

Josh reports that the salmon fly hatch is underway and fly fishing for late Winter steelhead and this coming trout opener would be the best bet. Fishing the “Holy water” (which is the short section between the Dam and the hatchery) and down to Shad Cove using any stone fly pattern. “There are many varieties to choose from” says Josh as he recommends having several in one’s fly box because you never know what they will bite on from day to day.

He suggested to try some of the small lakes and ponds for stocked trout and bass with black leech and streamer patterns.

He also mentioned that Diamond Lake should be good for big trout casting and retrieving leech patterns and using a “balanced leech” (a wooly bugger type tied on a jig hook- photos coming) along rocky shoreline and shoals after it warms up again after this last snow.

Any angler on the Rogue at this time will need to have in possession a valid combined angling tag, in addition to their fishing license.

Andy Martin- Brookings Fishing Charters 541-813-1082

Andy reports that wind will still be an issue for this weekend, however getting out early before the major wind picks up has produced limits of rock fish and lingcod. Halibut season that opened May 1st, finally saw 6 “Butts” at the dock this last Tuesday when the wind was calmer.

Salmon Season- The season out of Brookings runs June 12-Aug. 28. Hatchery Coho may be kept the entire season. Chinook (wild or hatchery) may be kept June 19-Aug 15. The daily limit is two salmon.

The season out of Crescent City and Eureka runs June 29-Aug. 1.

Bottom Fishing- Bottom fishing for lingcod and rock fish is still good when winds calmed down. If one wants to get out early morning before the winds pick up, there’s lots of opportunity for bottom fish. The weekend weather looks better for fishing the lakes and ponds inland than getting out on the ocean.
