Early June – Summer Steelhead on the Rogue River

Summer steelhead are making their appearance on the Rogue River. These early June fish can be quite hard to find. Good that they are ready biters, because that can make the difference in the higher water flows of June. With water releases at about 2200 CFS for the far upper river, the flow is about 2800 CFS where I was searching. Carpetbaggers, Brown Fork Tail Princes and G.R. Hare’s Ears are good flies to be swinging now. The Bead Head G.R. Hare’s Ear Nymph garnered the most strikes today.
