Carpetbagger Day on the Rogue River

Action came fast and heavy today on the Rogue River with the steelhead grabbing Carpetbagger Stonefly Nymphs with abandom. The first wild native came after only eleven cast of the Spey rod. I was fishing the Carpetbagger with a Beadhead G.R. Hare’s Ear dropper. The second fish struck so savage that the 10 pound Maxima leader parted in an instance. Out of the next three fish I managed to land two hatchery Rogue River hen steelhead. All the fish came to the Carpetbagger Nymph in either the Midnight Fire or Midnight Rainbow colors.
