Roge River Spring Chnk report.
Well winter steelhead fishing is almost a history lesson at this point. Actual count was just a tick short of 9000 through the counters.
Spring Salmon are now runing in good numbers through out the Rogue System. Just at 5000 fish so far through the fish counter at Gold Ray dam. (Gold Ray is about 10 miles due north of downtown Medford). From Gold Ray you've got about 30 more river before you hit THE DAM (Lost Creek). Nothing gets by Lost Creek unless it's pinned in the claws of a hawk.
Water level now running at a constant 2400 to 2700 cfs, up from 700 just a few weeks ago. Dumping ton of water from lake bottom to cool down river due to potential for fish diseases.
