A little cold today, but the sun was shining and it wasn’t raining. We couldn’t let this November day slip by without getting out on the river and fishing for Rogue River steelhead. Early on we were happy to spot the egret up in the high trees. Then we spotted several does being herded by a massive four point buck along the same brushy bank. Even though we knew the remaining afternoon drift would be short, we hope for and found plenty more action. Yes the Rogue River steelhead bite turned on for us. The fly they were going for was the Midnight Fire Carpetbagger. As it was earlier in the week, the action got better as the sun set lower. Teri’s cast were true and she indeed caught the big fish for the day.
