End of 2017 Rogue River Summer Steelhead Fun

Rogue River Retread Steelhead

A vividly colored hatchery buck steelhead caught at the end of 2017. End of year fly fishing fun!

Lots of recycled Rogue River summer steelhead caught in the river near Medford at the end of 2017.  The Cole Rivers Fish Hatchery located above Shady Cove trucked the “second chance” fish back down and released them near Medford and White City. The male buck steelhead are sporting vivid colors as the summer fish are near to the winter spawning time. Lots of end of year catching fun was enjoyed by many. Lets just say I got into quite a few of them! I’d have more video, but the camera’s battery was low.

December Fly of the Month

An Atlantic salmon fly pattern for Christmas Eve.

Santa’s Little Helper A Christmas theme Atlantic salmon fly pattern I came up with several years past. Though it’s never caught a salmon that I know of, I’m certainly sure it could. I just hope it fetches some Christmas Cheer. Santa’s Little Helper the December Fly of the Month.
