Guided Rogue River Winter Steelhead Trips

Rogue River Winter Steelhead

Winter Steelhead start entering the lower Rogue in late November and early December. Depending on the water conditions, I will start targeting them in mid January. Peak months are February to early April. Winter Steelhead on the Rogue average 6 to 9 pounds, with the occasional fish in the teens. The Rogue has a higher amount of fish than most other rivers. With the dam on the Rogue, it will bring the water level up for the fish to come in even without rain. The normal techniques for these fish are side-drifting, bobber fishing, and pulling plugs. Winter Steelhead are a very energetic, acrobatic, and all around psychotic fish to fight!
