Lower Rogue in late October

I've fished the Lower Rogue in the winter several times and love it, but never for summer/fall run fish. Anyone familiar with this stretch of the Rogue at this time, which seems to me to be a transition time? Something about the Lower Rogue is calling me.

Called Laverne to talk about shuttle service and the number has been disconnected. Anyone know if there is anyone else providing shuttles in the Agness area?

Thanks in advance!

Don't quote me on it, but I think the fish are higher up at this point.

Fish are certainly all through the system, but best bet is the middle too upper rogue. Also, there is still a lot of fire activity/potential in the Agnes area. All that being said, water is low and clear and cold right now. Some rain would sure heat things up in more ways than one, but there are fish spread throughout the system and they are being taken on the swing daily. Ive taken a fair few already this season on small drys and wets on a dry line. size 6 and 4 is golden, but these cold temps may have me taking out bigger irons soon.

Was out with a client today, ugh, huckin' spoons and drifting worms. His choice, not mine. Still, a beautiful day out watching otters, mink, and seeing spey instructors with clients from Whitehorse down to Hog Creek.

Most 2-handers we saw were swinging light intruders, mainly due to minimal flow, 2-4' depth at best. Water temps were 54.

To better answer your question, you might give DMJ Shuttles a call. Mike and/or Darilyn generally handle the Applegate/Gold Hill to Grave Creek area, but they may know of someone else that handles the lower river.
