End of November 2018 on the Rogue River (fresh steelhead!)

 

The river flow was lower yesterday when I fished. Overnight December rain has brought it up a bit. Still looks good for fly fishing and wading. Yesterday flow was about 1300 CFS and cold and 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.

Big Thunder and Lightening Storm on the Rogue River 8-08-2017

Sometimes you just can not let go. I had to catch that third summer steelhead. This day on the Rogue River of Oregon I wished I had called it quits early. Ignoring the brooding, building clouds, I got to experience first hand one intense and scary thunder with lightening storm.
