First Morel Mushrooms of 2018 in the Rogue Valley

I found them today March 21st. The first day of Spring I believe. The report is featured in the Morels 2018 tab. Good hunting! By the way fly fished a few runs today. The river flow is still low.  No winter steelhead hooked. Just one nice Rogue River cutthroat trout who couldn’t resist a Beadhead G.R. Hare’s Ear Nymph. The March Brown hatch was on.

Morel Number One!

Happy to find this first morel after checking another spot, fly fishing two holes and no results. Then this!


Carpetbagger Tearing Them Up On the Umpqua River

Roseburg, Oregon. Guide Mike Springer of Springer’s Guide Service and Rogue Wilderness Adventures reports 100 fish days for smallmouth bass on Oregon’s Umpqua River. Mike says, “The fly bite was awesome!” Mike sent along a couple photos including one of a Midnight Fire Carpetbagger Nymph that had survived “100 straight fish attacks” that very day. Mike also said something about crawdads, but I don’t believe him. Springer’s Guide Service
