Best Fishing Spot

The Rogue Valley is an internationally known haven for sport-angling, and local residents' favorite fishing place remains the river that runs through it.

The Rogue River again won an overwhelming nod among Readers' Choice voters for top fishing spot.

The Rogue sports Oregon's largest runs of native salmon and steelhead outside of the Columbia River basin, and the variety of fish species is matched by the variety of methods employed to catch them. Fishing is from the bank, from boats or wading, and with everything from bait and lures to flies.

But in true angler form, voters declined to share exactly where their "honey holes" are. Because once they'd told you, they'd have to kill you.

Other favorites: Howard Prairie Lake and Diamond Lake
