From the coast!

Our first Matsutake! From the Oregon coast area.

I finally get to try some wild matsutaki mushrooms. This is not a big haul…but even a “blind pig finds acorns sometimes.” In this case a blind pig would find this mushroom quite easily and to be very good. They have a decidely piney, pungent smell and a delicious gormet taste!

The lower Rogue River half-pound steelhead are numerous this year. They can be found from Agness on down. A light fly rod and size #8 Silver Ant pattern are an excellent setup for flyfishing these fiesty fish. These fresh from the Pacific anadromous fish are also very delicious.
