5-24-17: ROGUE RIVER NOW COLDER AND FASTER.

THIS WINTER IN SOUTHERN OREGON BROUGHT LOTS OF WATER TO THE AREA. THE U.S. FOREST SERVICE SAYS THAT WITH THE SNOWPACK AT AROUND 200% ABOVE NORMAL, IT’S MAKING FOR A COLDER, FASTER ROGUE RIVER. TWO RESCUES HAD TO BE MADE FROM THE RIVER OVER THE PAST WEEK. BUT, ANGLERS SAY THAT THIS IS THE BEST RIVER CONDITIONS THAT THEY’VE SEEN IN NEARLY 10 YEARS.
