Springtime (and fish) on the Rogue

Color abounds near the banks of the Rogue.

High water flow is what we have on the Rogue River this Spring. With all the rainy weather the green grass is long and thick, and the wildflowers are in abundance. Today I watched Spring chinook salmon breaking water as they sped upstream. A Beadhead G.R. Hare’s Ear nymph was a good fly to have tied on and in the water. It always is. What with the high water and the lack of impediment of the old dams, Gold Ray and Savage Rapids, I suspect the larger summer steelhead to be arriving soon almost concurrent with the middle of the salmon run.

A little video with fish and the river.
