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!
