Rogue River — Video of the Week

The upper Rogue River's Casey State Park is anything but just another bend in the river during the Rogue's spring chinook salmon run.

A small community of anglers gravitates to the park every summer to cast for spring chinook and share pieces of their lives — in some cases, for four decades or more.

The Mail Tribune's ongoing series of weekly videos on how to float and fish the Rogue resumes today with a new video on the people and their fishing exploits at Casey State Park.

The new Rogue River Guide includes an interactive map on the upper Rogue's fishing spots, whitewater rapids, boat ramps and even where to spot such river mainstays as bald eagles and osprey.

The series is produced by Mail Tribune outdoors writer Mark Freeman and staff photographer Jamie Lusch, who are floating their way downstream to the ocean.
