Landed three all on my Yellow Fork Tail Prince Nymph. One of the steelhead was my largest of the Fall so far. Hooked in a very difficult place, I had to deep wade down river to get to the filming spot. The fish ran way down stream almost to the spill over of the tail out. I was expecting a wild, native Rogue River steelhead. Surprise! She was a nice 26 inch hatchery hen.
A couple steelhead caught on an early morning hike on the Rogue River, Oregon. Dim light is alright!
Another good foray! Tuesday found me trekking the step slopes of the southern Cascade mountains in search of the black morel mushroom of the Rogue Valley area. Wintery weather of cold rain and high winds persisted throughout the hunt.
Rogue Guiden with largest black morel find of the day.
Yes, they are starting to pop in the high Cascade Mountains. Here’s the first four black morels that I found along an old logging road.
The first of the mountain black morels are found on May 11, 2017. Let the treks into the high Cascades begin. To see more see the Morels 2017 page:

Time to visit the Cascade Mountains for black morels!
Neil with a yummy find.
Morels are mysterious little fellow. They can be found in usual haunts. On this day we discovered morels coming up in different and unexpected locations like this little grass clearing.
We found this lone morel along a deer trail under Oregon ash trees.
