I managed to hit the Middle Rogue for a couple of hours yesterday in search of some fall kings. Unfortunately there wasn’t much going on during the middle of the afternoon. Right now it’s all an early morning, or late evening show, but there are cooler temperatures on the way. Hopefully with the cooler temps we’ll see the bite stay active for longer.
