Early December Rogue River steelhead

A cold water steelhead taken with a beadhead G.R. Hare's Ear nymph

Instead of wading through water you crunched through ice.

Though nearby still waters were frozen, the Rogue ran open.

With water so skinny and cold you can see a lot of the rocky bottom you concentrate on the darker green slots and hidey holes to find the late Fall Rogue River steelhead. This nice Rogue River summer steelhead took a bead head G.R. Hare’s Ear fished with a floating line and long thin leader.The take was an abrupt stop to the drift of the fly.
