The fly box is full and ready for a float on the far upper Rogue River. Going through my fly tying material, I came across a number of dry salmon fly patterns tied during past years. The Rogue Foam, the Low Forehead, the Jughead, the Glimmer Wing, Bird’s Stonefly now accompany the new Stimulators and modified Norm Woods Specials. All are fish catchers!
So I’m ready for what the upper Rogue can dish out this time of year in rainbow and cutthroat trout. I’ve seen salmon down around Medford. I’ll post pics and more on that latter. The chinook count has grown…to something around 4,000 salmon. A number of summer steelhead have also been counted at the Gold Ray Dam station. I’ll have more on all that latter.
