Rogue River, above Lost Creek Reservoir: trout
No recent fishing reports. As of Wednesday morning, the Hwy 62 webcam at Union Creek showed bare pavement. Check this before heading up. It may be worth a stop for a cast or two if folks are heading to Diamond Lake to ice fish, but certainly not a destination fishery at this time, except for the scenery.
More information on Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest lands can be found on their website or calling the RRSNF office.
This reach was stocked from Prospect to Minehaha creek with 3,000 rainbow trout every week from Memorial Day through Labor Day. All tributaries above Lost Creek Reservoir are open year-round with a 5 trout limit.
With very cold water, presentation is usually the key, get your bait down and free drifting with as little drag as possible. Also plan on fishing later in the day when temperatures may be warmer. Last updated 2/24/21.
A more viable opportunity would be to hire one of the various Northwest walleye fishing guides that offer guided walleye fishing trips on the Columbia River.
