This week we took Rick Hennes & Boise Cascade down the Rogue River for an adventure. Awesome weather is back, along with it awesome fishing too! Over 20 fish were caught below Rainy Falls in a two hour period. At one point all 7 boats made a pass through the same hole and all 7 boats hooked up one after the other. A fun and fish filled day for sure!!
This week we brought John Kenner and friends for an adventure down the Rogue River into the Southern Oregon wilderness. The rain seems to be sticking around, giving us a couple days of wet weather. But this also seems to have caused the fish to move up river faster than they ever have before. We were catching fish on our last day on the bottom end which was on September 10th. By the 12th we were getting that same group of fish 50 miles up river. The season is moving along!
We're into September and the Rogue River rain came early this year! This week enjoyed 2 days of cooler temperatures with the rain, which was a welcomed because it helped to cool the water temperature down. With the lowering water temperature we've seen our first real push of salmon, though on our last day of fishing. We ended up catching right around 30 salmon, although majority of those were jacks. It was a welcome sight.
We have had another very nice weather trip down the Rogue River. The water conditions for boating have been excellent. The guests have been a real treat! The food at Black Bar, Marial Lodge and Singing Springs lodges continues to be outstanding. With fun filled evenings, enjoying dinner together, reminiscing about the day and what the next day has in store!
