A Couple Steelhead From Another Good Session on the Upper Rogue River of Oregon

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.

High Mountain Black Morels 5/17/2017

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 the First Blacks

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:
