On the river. Blue bird skies and super, clear, low water. Lunker time!
Bright colored pheasant walk the shores of the Rogue River during October. Fly fishing and hunting, this is what is known as “cast and blast”
The bright male steelhead called “bucks” are arriving now They are larger than the female fish and more vividly colored.
Aggressive and hooked jawed, the buck steelhead take the large Carpetbagger Stonefly Nymph well. In this instance, it was the Midnight Fire Carpetbagger Nymph.
