The orange beadhead Brownbagger scored in the high water with the catch of the above pictured steelhead. The flow was high for the upper Rogue and it took a lot of prospecting to find one. Was not so hard on the 23rd when I caught two with the switch fly rod in a lesser flow. The fly patterns that have worked are the Brownbagger and the Midnight Fire Carpetbagger. I’m using beadhead G.R. Hare’s Ear and Prince nymphs for the dropper fly. The Beadhead G. R. Hare’s Ear worked on one of the bottom pictured fish. Have to reiterate again, the water flow is high. Water data says that the flow is over 3800 CFS. There is already a crew of salmon fisherman working the Hatchery Hole for Spring chinook. I hear that a couple Springers have already been caught.
