What to Expect in March
Hatches divided by half-month.
Super Major Minor Slight None
Look for river levels of 2,000 cfs or less at Dodge Bridge. When flows look good, head for the river with some Egg Flies and Egg Sucking Leeches . Present them near the bottom, using indicator tactics for the former and traditional tactics for the latter.
The lower Rogue is also fishable, of course, and there are some nice fly-fishing runs in the Galice area.
On the Holy Water, look for blue-winged olive and midge hatches. You can also generate some grabs if you present a leech pattern on a surface swing. Good weather brings out the anglers, so don't expect to be alone.
March brown hatches can be very strong on this river, and trout fishing is allowed in the mainstem until the end of the month.
