River A Steelhead

First legit winter steelhead of January 2013


With temperatures warming in the Rogue Valley winter steelhead are beginning to move into the upper reaches of the rivers. Yesterday I connected with a tributary Rogue River winter steelhead with a Carpetbagger Nymph Fly (the BrownBagger). Now that waterfowl season is over I will be getting out on the rivers with the Spey rod with some regularity. Hopefully the rainshadow will remain moderate and the Rogue River and tributaries will remain in good shape for fishing the winter fish.

Brownbagger Nymph.
