Finding a nice bag full of Rogue Valley morels kept me busy. I did get one good pull to the switch fly rod. Just a quick pull to a Carpetbagger and G.R. Hare’s Ear combination of flies. I don’t know what fly the fish hit. It was quick and I missed the strike. Felt like a good fish too. Darn! I suspect it was a big cutthroat because of where I was fishing. Always a cutthroat or two in that shallow stretch. Then again there are still a few late winter steelhead about and now the chance for a Spring salmon too. By the time I got to fishing the afternoon sun was on the water and that is not always good for success. The water flow is good so fish should move even in the afternoon sun. I did see one sizeable fish jump moving as if it was heading upstream. I thought to myself perhaps a jack salmon or an early summer steelhead. Sure would like to have hook ’em.
