Carpetbagger for April

The orange egghead Brownbagger is the pattern to use now on the upper Rogue River.

Now that April is nearly here the winter steelhead fishing is going to get excellent on the upper Rogue River. The ready rains of March are coming less frequent and the river is dropping and clearing. There is a good mix of steelhead in the upper Rogue. With the spawning that is going to be happening, my choice of Carpetbagger pattern is the Brownbagger. I’ve changed the Brownbagger Stonefly nymph a bit to bring the design more in line with the standard Carpetbagger. The color is Copper/Black a good choice for the upper Rogue. The orange beadhead is a size smaller. The hook remains the same size #4, but is of the straight eye natural bend style. Here’s a good nymph for the month!
