There is a drive currently underway to remove the fall bait ban on the upper Rogue. Hearings are scheduled in Mid-August.

As flyfishers, we have been poorly organized against this lobbying. That must change.

Here is an article about the situation from the local paper:

Here is a thread at our local board with the key persons' contact info:

PLEASE e-vocalize your support of the continued ban on bait in the fall for the upper Rogue.

I am on the BOD of the WSC and I will bring this up and we will make a statement on this. Bait in the summer especially isn't a good idea and the science backs that up.

thanks for the Heads up.
