The salmonflies (and crowds of anglers) will have departed the Holy Water by the end of June. Trout fishing in the main river is decent, although the fish are not large. You may find the tail end of the golden stonefly hatch in early July. In the Holy Water, you can still take trout, even though the easy-pickin' days of the salmonfly hatch are over. Try a sinking line with a Hale Bopp Leech or other streamer. You may encounter hatches of pale morning duns and caddis.

There should be a few steelhead in the upper Rogue by mid-July; it's a low-percentage game, but you there's still the chance of a connection.

For more information on July fishing, see the Rivers section of the General Oregon Report
