For fly anglers in the Pacific Northwest, fishing in January usually means targeting winter steelhead. Unfortunately for us in the Rogue Valley, few winter steelhead have typically reached our section of the River. If we want to find good numbers of fish, we must head for the coast. For our outing on January 28 and 29, we will do just that—we will go to the lower Rogue River near Gold Beach.
On Saturday, the 28th, we will meet for breakfast at 8:00 AM at the Indian Creek Cafe located a short distance upstream of Hwy 101 on the south side of the Rogue River (94682 Jerry's Flat Road). If you don't want to eat breakfast, join us there by 9:00 AM.
There are also a variety of other fishing options in the area.
Due to the uncertainty of river conditions during the winter, be sure to check the club's website before you leave for the outing to see if we had to make any last-minute changes.
