It’s Steelhead Weather on the Upper Rogue River, Oregon. This means cold, foggy mornings with sometimes–if you’re lucky–clearing up in the afternoons. Today was exceptionally clear and bright. The chill, however, remained in the air and in the water. A visit to the middle Rogue River brought one fish to hand.
Earlier this week trips to Takelma on the upper Rogue River, the hatchery section and Rogue Elk Park were fun but the large steelies and coho eluded us.
All in all a slow cold start to December. Let’s hope for some rain and the fish counts to rise.
