A walk in hike lead to this early September hatchery steelhead in a narrow holding run along the bank of the Rogue River. My home-made Scandi/Skagit casting head made throwing a G.R.Hare’s Ear Nymph easy from a casting area backed up by a high bank with trees and brush. The steelhead are where you find them. Never easy, but always a glorious challenge.
Getting closer to September 1st and fly fishing only on the upper Rogue River. The hot Carpetbagger Stonefly Nymphs are being fashioned on the Renzetti fly tying vice.
