Rogue River - Rockford ( April 4, 2015)

Fishing Report:  Rogue River in Rockford - April 4, 2015

Arrived before light in hope of getting some morning fish action.  The river conditions are great, water is low and clear.  There was a fair amount of fishing pressure, but not overly crowded.

I observed a few fish being caught and helped to net a large dark male fish for an angler who had just broke his rod during the catch.  He was just about to grab the fishing line and I said NO just hang on, the fish was about one good run away from breaking the 8 lb line.

The fish was caught on a small egg pattern fly.

Overall it appears the fish are not up river yet.  No silver fish were being caught and the cold temps seem to be holding the water temp to a very slow warm up.

Fishing should be great soon and April should turn out to be a wonderful month to fish.

Good Luck and Tight Lines!

Grand River - 6th Street Bridge

Fished the Grand River by 6th Street and below on Sunday March 29th.  There were many fish being caught at the dam.  The fishing pressure was low compared to many other times, in part due to the cold and wind.

Spoke with lots of fishermen about the conditions and local bite.  Many people responded that good fishing started about 1-2 weeks earlier with the warmer weather and tapered off with the cold.  Everyone wanted to see some rain and felt the water was still a little cold.

Feb 2, 2012 - Good Fishing Weather


All the veteran fishermen will say that we should be cleaning the ice out of the eyes on our fishing rods this time of year.... but we are not!  This warmer weather has made it feel like its time to fish, even if you are not a person who gets their gear out until March / April.

Time to get out and enjoy!
