|Phil Tripp with a bait opener steelhead|
If you didn’t know the upper Rogue opened to the use of bait from the hatchery to Shady Cove yesterday. It also opened to all artificial lures from Shady Cove down to the former Gold Ray dam site. After seeing nothing but flies for the last 2 months, the steelhead were very aggressive towards the new presentations. You can find my quick little write up about how the opener went over on MyOutdoorBuddy.com – Upper Rogue Bait Opener Sees Big Catches.
