To access the gravel bar by foot, you have to cross some tributary creeks.
The Rogue River has carved many channels over the years. Evidence of their existence remain today.
There are many trout moving through the Rogue River system right now. The catch is inadvertent. Targeting trout will be legal once again on May 23. The rule is to protect the movement of anadromous smolts between March 31 through May 23. The upstream movement of big salmon passes the downstream migration of the young fish.
I’m amazed my old Canon camera continues to kick out photos. It has certainly taken a lot of abuse including countless dunkings. These photos are from yesterday’s good time on the Rogue where not a salmon was seen or caught, but the beauty of the river was appreciated.
