Half pounder time on the lower Rogue River. While the upper Rogue River continues to stew with the hot weather, I have been hearing some good reports from the lower river. Good half pound steelhead fishing has been had below Clay Hill. Over on the Klamath river half pound and adult steelhead have been found above Orleans. Copper Herniators have been working on the Klamath, and there is no reason similar success should not happen on the lower Rogue River. Here are Carpetbaggers, mini-Carpetbaggers, Herniators, Brown Forked Tail Prince, and Bead Head G.R. Hare’s Ear nymphs all bound for the lower Rogue. Steelhead beware, your new tooth ache is on the way.
