Grants Pass Pro-guide Troy Whitaker of Troy’s Guide Service (541-761-0015) – Troy has been fishing the Rogue Bay in Gold Beach lately as the weather has been hot in the valley. Rogue River flows have reduced dramatically the last 2 days and the water temp is 70+ degrees making the current Summer/ Fall Chinook that are starting to come into the bay will hold. Boat trolling pressure has picked up a bit , but is still fairly light. Troy got 2 nice Chinook trolling Rogue spinner bait with anchovy brined over night in Pautzke clear/ blue bait brine

SW Oregon Guides Forecast, Josh from Rogue Fly Shop in Grants Pass 541-476-0552

Josh reports that the salmon fly hatch is winding down from Shady Cove on up to Lost Creek. Some summer are showing up but expect the bite to slow for a week or so to acclimate to newer low water conditions. July should be pretty good Josh expects.

Marine Forecast – Hot valley temperatures will most likely produce coastal fog and stir up some winds, but the weekend forecast look pretty good to get out in the cooler coast and try some salmon fishing. Coho and Chinook (2 salmon/day limit) prospects are good out of Brookings, Gold Beach, Port Orford, Coos Bay, Charleston, Winchester and Umpqua ports.

Minus tides are also forecasted for the weekend and could lead to some nice clamming as well. Reports of Coho limits earlier this week when boats could get out indicates a decent salmon season.

Bottom fishing is now restricted to inside the 40-fathom line unless you choose to fish in the offshore longleader fishery. The daily bag limit for marine fish was recently reduced to 5 fish. As of June 1, boat anglers can no longer retain China, copper, and quillback rockfish. Anglers can still harvest 2 lingcod per day. Anglers must release all cabezon through June.

Anglers may also choose to fish the offshore longleader fishery outside of the 40-fathom regulatory line, which is open year-round. The longleader fishery has a daily bag limit of 10 fish made of yellowtail, widow, canary, blue, deacon, redstripe, greenstripe, silvergray, chillipepper, and bocaccio rockfish.

Nearshore halibut season is currently open seven days a week inside the 40-fathom line. Anglers have been picking up nearshore halibut in the Coos Bay/Bandon area. There is still about 80% of the quota remaining. The next All-Depth Halibut open days are July 1-3. Anglers have been picking up nearshore halibut in the Coos Bay/Bandon area.

Check out Jeff’s detailed report and forecast in this week’s paid version for Chinook and Steelhead Members both!
