Steam flow continues at 1800 cfs at 57.7 degrees out of Lost Creek Dam. 1200 summer runs and 315 fall Chnk through the Gold Raye dam counter. (FYI: GR dam is about 5 miles north of downtown Medford)
 
With the continued high flows (usually running at 1200 cfs, or less) heavier gear and flys necessary to get down to fish hugging bottom. Be careful with the game regs as the salmon season is closed in much of the upper river. Fish seem to be spread from hell to breakfast from Dodge Bridge to upper Touville Park. "A little Birdie" also tells me that the section of the river from Grants Pass to town of Rogue River is also chock-a-bloc with the little devils.

Fred , what little devils would you be refering to ? Did you get a new pet Osprey ? Have you been holding out on me ? October Caddis's ? Have you heard when they are going to drop the CFS yet ? Fish-Head

"Dogs body one to Dogs Body two!"
 
How you doing buddy!! God, I hope your not 'playing' with anything with more that 200,000 volts over in K. Falls area. Do "it" wrong and "it" will straighten out (for the last time) "certain" parts of the bod. (FYI: Andy/Fish-head works with major power distribution lines ... far more guts than I)
 
To respond: We have our sources .... and I don't care if you're the best guy with a single hander I've ever met. I have my sources. Did I just screw up the spelling therre? (Boss Man; Mark B's right, get a spell checker on line. At 59, two double malts or no, spelling, proper English, etc., is everything. :>)
 
The word is fish are moving up in great numbers into the 'middle section' of the upper Rogue (for the other folk: upper is Rainey Falls to Lost Creek Dam, give or take, a 60 mile section of the upper Rogue, with Medford being about dead-center). Darn things are moving like heck, stopping, moving up when the urge moves them etc. So what's new for you on that one?
 
With your boat you're cool; search and distroy, etc.  For the other folk: I've never seen Andy kill a fish that wasn't a bleeder. Go for it ... better yet call me and I'll balance out the front end of the drift boat.
Miss you a lot.

Andy, good to go on your info. Lots of fish holding below Evans Creek. Ego says it was named after me but I'm about 50 years to late for that.
 
And to respond (group wise) to several e mails, if your down here Andy is an outstanding guide. Couldn't recommend anyone more highly. And, no I don't get free trips; we usually fish off the beach together.
 
Another guide 'guy' for the Deschutes (pricie but worth every dollar) is Al Bagley at 541 553 1051. Only 'official' Indian guide in the Warm Springs area and this fellow really knows his stuff. Orig. into'ed by a good friend who works for the Tribe. Paid up like everyone else; but really knows where of he speaks. (So endeth the lesson from the cheepskate.)
 
Anyway, back to the point: If your back in Medford this weekend "wife-type" says we can get lost together.
Fred
