The Winter Steelhead Have Arrived

The Winter Steelhead Have Arrived

Hooked into my first one yesterday. Felt a little challenged with my 6 weight switch rod when I pulled him up to the surface and felt his power. I clamped down on my horse and felt the knot give at the bottom fly after some thrashing on the surface. Yes, he hit a mere wisp of an G.R. Hare’s Ear in the murky water of the Rogue. Recent rains had brought the river’s flow up along with turbidity. I think a good number of winter steelhead made a move with the warming change of the month. I got no other hook ups, but I did see two other fish show on the surface during the day.
