Seems the cold weather has held the summer and fall steelhead in place. An ODF&W plant of recycled hatchery steelhead (retreads) has kept anglers busy and happy on the upper Rogue River. In particular the Tou Velle and Denman WA have been producing. In between duck hunts I have found the steelhead to still be hitting fly patterns. This recent Rogue River hatchery steelhead came to an Bead Head G.R. Hare’s Ear Nymph.
