"Houston! We have lift off!!!"
Rogue River has been running really high for the past several weeks (dumping water out from behind the Wm Jess dam) .. but over this past week the flows are being cut 100 cfs per day, and that looks like it's going to be cut even further.
Already several thousand Spring Kings in the Hatchery (just below the dam) and over 500 Summer run Steelhead in the holding pens. And that's close to a month or more early!!!!
For context, below 2500 cfs at Dodge Bridge (link above) you're into great fly fishing conditions.
If you've got the time/inclination, it's GAME ON
on the top end of the Rogue River.
