Going Back to Go Forward - The Rogue River is Free Again

If you have ever fished the Rogue River in Oregon, you what a beautiful river it is......and yesterday, "The wild and scenic Rogue River has become even wilder with the demolition of a dam that had hindered passage of salmon and steelhead to their spawning grounds for 88 years."


Here's the full story from the NY Times:

They're about to do the same to the Klamath River. Just means you'll have to come visit!

Hey Matt,
One of the best things that could happen to that river!
I grew up in Medford, a stones throw away from the Rogue, and fished it constantly as a youth. I can't wait to visit home now that They are opening up that river!
