    Hi,

    Going to run the Rogue Riverh the family from above Graves Creek to Agness next week. As my wife just sprung this plan on me today I am scambling to find out what the fishing is up to right now. What little I know it is a majority Salmon and Steelhead river but know nothing about the run timing. If anyone is aware of a thread or external link that can provide this info I would love to take a look. Is the river in this stretch amenable to spey or is it too thin?

    Thanks,

    Thomas

    Tom,
    I think it's a bit early, but it has been a few years since I have fished that stretch. One piece of advice that I can offer is to pack a few copper johns (red). Hooked most of my steelhead on this pattern.

    Springers are in the river this time of year. Choice of guide (assuming guided trip thru the wild & scenic) can be a factor as most are gear types. Were it me, I'd bring an 8 or 9 wt Skagit setup, heavy MOW tips & big flies. River flows are down right now, so you probably wont need more than 6ft of T-14, but then again, if there are any deep holes, that''s where you'll find them.
