Ideal CFS for Upper Rogue in Winter?

Looking for ideal flows to swing upper Rogue, am I correct in thinking 2000 CFS or less at Dodge Bridge is the target I want?

Cfs

Yes but, between the idiots in charge of Lost Creek dam (headquartered behind desks in Portland) trying to juggle storing water for dry times, the storms, & cfs flows that equate to good swing water, (priorities more or less in that order) not to mention planning a trip from out of state, it's kind of a crap shoot. A lot of winter fish don't make it up this far. May be better to monitor the flows in the Grants Pass area, or the Applegate. A lot of winter fish turn of at the Applegate.

I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.

That is a relative question as some people like more some less. The best thing is to go fish it at different levels, just learn where the fish hold, and under what circumstances. As far as the core of engineers, they have had little effect on the river this year other than the time they released 3500 cfs in December. Nature, well that's another story. Don't let anyone fool you, there are plenty of winters around.

I have a place to stay a few miles out of Rogue River so it's likely I'll be spending time between Valley of Rogue and Whitehorse or Griffin or Ferry parks as well as upper river. Have a 14' cat and that'll be brought up eventually. Using DB gauge as a reference point, may be others that are better for the lower section of river. I'm retired so plan is to have the base where I can fish Shady Cove or above to Tou Velle, V of the R downstream and the NU and North Coast rivers,depending on conditions.
