Over the weekend the weather broke with a rainy day Sunday. Good news for the Rogue Valley wildfires. The rain did much to clean the air in the valley, washing the smoke from the sky and settling the dust on the roads. The steelhead bite continued, and fished well into the near Fall like morning. Don’t you just hate it when the fly pulls after a leap-filled spirited battle with a steelhead? The steelhead took a small Bead Head G.R. Hare’s Ear Nymph fished in tandem with a Carpetbagger Stonefly Nymph. Fishing the fly and bubble technique with a spin rod.
