Army Corps Dropping Water Releases to the Upper Rogue

Lost Creek water releases to the upper Rogue River have been dropping slowly. I noticed it a couple of days ago. Didn’t make a difference as it was still hard to find a biting steelhead. I did see a large, dark Chinook salmon showing itself in the center of a run. Big Chinookie dominating the run to cause the steelhead to hide even better.


Today’s flow settles out around 1720 CFS. End of today’s air temperatures will be around 98°F. A little end of summer heat spike that should abate some by Sunday.


Flow down around Medford and White City sections.


Graph showing the release up near the McGregor Park section. By Tuesday that should be down around 1200 CFS.
