    Default The latest on fishing in Oregon.

    Recreation Report: Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife

    For context, I'm in the SW Zone. One new feature they tossed in was '50 places to fish within 60 minutes of Medford (I'm 6 miles to the NE).' Was fun to see just how many of those places I've been. And a few I've never heard of before.

    Without going back and doing an actual count, tad over 40 of the 50. Of those not, most are 'still waters.'

    Edit: Went back and looked at the 'dots.' Vast bulk are on the Rogue River or Applegate. Also found a 'typo' in my original posting; number should be '50' not 60.

    Fred: Sounds like you have travelled aroung that area pretty well exploring the local waters. I figured you had a pretty good handle on the local fishing.

    I get a lot of phone calls and PM's from folks who want to fish the Rogue, so keeping track of 'what's what' has become a fun game. The other thing is this Statewide report (via e-mail) comes out three, some times four, times per month.

    From personal experience the things damned accurate, all be it 'dated' by a few days. With that in mind, hit the Rogue in the Grants Pass area (even right in town!!). Guys are having a field day at the moment and these appear to be really freash fish.

    I was fishing in the big butte creek on opening day, was catching 6-8" brooks, rainbow, cutthroats. keep two about 10"

    and was fishing in beaver dam creek in early may, caught several nice brooks and rainbows. was a lot of fun, keep a couple of 10". this creek is was of Medco pond on butte falls- prospect Hwy.

    If things go right, this weekend I will get down on the north fork of the little butte creek or Beaver dam creek.

    First a warm welcome to someone whose obviously in my 'Neck of the Woods.' Small water fishing around here is something I have little personal experience. Looking forward to reading your reports.

    Keep them coming!

    Went out last night, fished a couple hours after work in the Big Butte Creek just east of Butte Falls.

    had some luck. landed 6 rainbow and brooks about 7", fun but not for the table and about the time I was ready to quit, I hooked into a nice 12" rainbow that put a good little fight. Not sure what fly I was using but I have a 4 weight rig. fun times.

    Planning on stopping up on the little butte creek and beaver dam creek this weekend for some more sport.

    I let you all know how it goes.

    Have a good fathers day, I am going fishing........

    Sounds like I'm going to have to get off my butt and burn a bit of Petrol. Never fished either of the waters you named above.... time for a Google Earth tour.
