Lower Rouge River HELP??
Looking at going to the Rouge River end of April for springers. (Kings) I have never been over there so trying to see if I can learn a few things. I drift fish the salmon and that's what I am use to doing.. Is the rogue river to big to do that? Is it packed with people.. can I hike to places that might be good? Please any help would be great.

That's a good question. The lower section ...from ocean up 15 miles.. Or so. I hear it's mostly plunking from the bank? I have never even been to the river so looking for help is all!

A buddy of mine was over there a year ago the same time you are going. He said water wad very high and would have been difficult to Bank fish. He ended renting a guide. Which worked out for him...
You can check reports on the Oregon area of this site as well as http://www.oregonfishingforum.com/...y.php/73-Rogue-River
I usually call one of the Marinas in the area to check on the water and techniques and they have been very helpful.

Sorry couldn't get more details, but that Oregon forum looks very useful.
