Big Butte Creek – South Fork Fishing

Rarely fished and easily accessible, the south fork of Big Butte Creek is a numbers fishery in a forest setting and is a great place to take first timers on a hot summer day.  Big Butte Creek is a tributary of the famous Rogue River; it flows northwest from near Mt. McLoughlin through the town of Butte Falls in Jackson County.

Averaging 8 inches and pushing 15 inches, this stream is chock full of native Rainbow and Cutthroat trout. Big Butte is best fished May through November or when the water levels have stabilized below 150
