August begins

Rogue cutthroat fell to a swinging Silver Hilton fly.

Rogue cutthroat fell to a swinging Silver Hilton fly.

After over a week of the “Hot Weather” a cooling trend has arrived and it is time to get back on the Rogue. The state of the steelhead remains the same…they are not readily available. I told you they would hide after that early July rush! The number of fish counted is 3,130 summer steelhead so far. Good news this year is that the Spring chinook count is up…over 12,000 fish.

Good news for me today on this “return to the Rogue” was a nice cutthroat trout that hit a Silver Hilton fished on the swing in the 1,970 CFS flow of the upper Rogue River.
