Good Day on Rogue River Cutthroat Trout

This Rogue River Cutthroat Trout came to a Brown Forked Tail Prince Nymph.

This trophy Rogue River Cutthroat Trout came to a Brown Forked Tail Prince Nymph.

This nice Rogue River cutthroat trout came to a Brown Forked Tail Prince while fly fishing for winter steelhead yesterday. The overcast sky was good for fly fishing for cutthroats. A little latter I noticed a few trout begin rising in the run. I noticed a few good size March Brown floating on the water surface. Also there were the smaller, I think they were BW Olives present. As the hatch grew in numbers so did the visible rising trout. I tied on a lighter tippet and cast a parachute BW Olive size #12 fly to them. I caught four more and they were all cutthroat trout. After having that fun, I went back to fishing the run with heavy nymphs for steelhead, but that action remained slow even with the good overcast sky.
