October 24, 2021
Southern Oregon Report by Steve Scow

The last couple of days have been good on the Rogue River.  We are fishing hard under an indicator and fishing flies on the swing hasn't been too bad.  We've brought fish to hand nymphing and had a few grabs on the sink tip.  This year has been anything but normal.  The Army Corps of Engineers cut the outflow to a level that hasn't been seen in years.  This storm system that is over us right now is dumping at lot of water and we saw a decent rise in water levels overnight.  Fishing has been hard but we have had success working areas we know.  We are going to see rain through Wednesday (10/27) which is going to bring the water levels up and get the fish that are holding low in the system moving.  The season is not over yet and we are going to have more fish moving up river with this rain.  I still have some dates available and would love to take you out on the Upper Rogue.

Lower Sac Report by Luke Geraty

Saturday in October can be pretty busy on the Sac but today we got on early and saw relatively few other boats. I'm not sure if it was the torrent of rain that kept a few people off the water or maybe we just got on early enough to avoid the armada of anglers. Either way, we couldn't have had a better day fishing AND catching. These two hooked so many fish we couldn't even keep track of how many and the estimates began to reach proportions that some of y'all would probably accuse of exaggeration. So I'll keep it at this: the bite was ON today. We caught fish on eggs, rubber legs, and a few of the tiny flies that I can't tell you about because I want them to work for as long as I can milk 'em, ha ha! We caught fish in deep water, shallow water, and everything in between. Fish it all! The fishing was so good that we stopped even caring about getting a photo of the 18 inch fish we were catching. "Shake it off and let's get another." Now THAT is a good day! The water was a bit colored up yesterday but today it was back to it's more typical self. Yesterday that worked in our favor because the trout in the salmon redds couldn't see us and we seemed to hook a lot more right next to the boat. Today we had to cast a bit further in order to avoid spooking them, but Mark and Jessica had no problem. What a fun day! It's not all about numbers but it's hard not to enjoy the days when we have steady red hot action all day long. Oh... and I should mention... Mark lost a fish that was in the "Hey-that-might-be-30-inches" category. The fish took a bunch of line and jumped twice and on the second jump spit the hook. I guess you can't have it all! Got a couple days off now so I'm going to try and dry off, go to church, and spend some time with the family. Next week I'm on the Trinity and the Sac, so I'm sure I'll have more to report. Keep dry and enjoy the rain!

Lower Sac Report by Luke Geraty

Jessica and Mark spent a day with me on the Trinity and then on the Sac. Tomorrow we are doing a third day on the Sac. Here's a quick run down: the Trinity fished good. We hooked two adults. Both managed to evade the net. We caught a lot of half pounders throughout the day, as well as lost a bunch too. In fact, Jessica hooked one on her first cast! It rained a lot but we had a great time.Today we were on the Sac and, quite frankly, we crushed it. Lots of fish and a few of them were donkeys. Pretty fun day and we even had some sunshine!
