A Flash of Steel

February’s chill and cold has turned a corner as March arrives on the upper Rogue River. The first sunny day of the month shines on a river that is yet cloudy with cold and silt. A steelhead can still be pulled from the murky depths if you know the right spot and fish the right fly. A Carpetbagger Nymph fished with the spin rod and floating bubble is just the right tool to strike that flash of steel under the current conditions. The weekend weather calls for more sun and calm, The fishing conditions can only get better as the Rogue River clears and drops into better shape.

Bit of chrome comes up from the depths
