Free Fishing Weekend June 5-6 is a great time to introduce friends or family members to your favorite fishing adventures – no license, tag or validation needed to fish anywhere in Oregon.

This week’s weather has been in the 100’s here in the Rogue Valley. Recent increased flow out of Lost Creek Dam has provided Rogue River flow to just under 3000 cfs and keeping temps under 60 degrees to help aid what Spring Chinook there are, to make it up to the hatchery spawning grounds. With the few anglers who get up early, most fishing pressure has been in the upper river above Shady Cove where some catches have taken place… not good by any means, but sporadic at best.

Most people are in the river and not fishing it! My personal best bet for upcoming fishing opportunity is to head to the lakes and ponds, or even to the coast for some excellent bottom and perch fishing. It is FREE FISHING WEEKEND!

Grants Pass guide Troy Whitaker of Troy’s Guide Service (541-761-0015) – Troy’s been fishing the local lakes recently. Applegate lake has been producing trout limits (5) trolling wedding rings about 30’ down tipped with Pautzke Shoepeg corn or worms. Lost Creek is still getting nice trout trolling the same.

Local Grants Pass guide Riley Wallace of Wallace Guide Service 541-761-2386

Riley also have been hitting the lakes more so lately since the Springer action has been slow. He got some nice kokanee and browns Memorial weekend over at Paulina Lake. He suggests Lost Creek, Applegate, or Selmac best bets for trout and bass fishing. If wanting to try your luck for Springers you better go early and up around Shady Cove.
