Bill Shelton reports: Rouge River Salmon Float Trip.  Bill  Gygax & I had a fantastic fun-filled 3 days of salmon and steelhead fishing the Upper Rogue River with guide Harold Hanson with his drift boat.  Score, 1st day hooked 5 landing 2 with one released wild fish (estimate 25 pounds,) and one keeper.  We caught all fish on 1st day with sardine wrapped Quickfish and nothing caught on roe. Second day hooked 9 landing 2 with one wild released fish and one keeper. One on salmon roe and the rest on Quickfish.  Third day hooked 7 landing 4 with one steelhead kept and releasing a big wild salmon (estimate 25 pounds).  We stayed at Edgewater Inn in Shady Cove and we launched at Richard Cole launch and floated approximately 14 miles.  Early morning producing the best fishing.
