Another nice beginning on the ever beautiful North Umpqua  The North continues to be good, though are fish numbers over Winchester dam aren't good at all. You really have to admire these North Umpqua steelhead for their eagerness to take a fly. Granted we aren't seeing banner days like I here coming from the Deschutes but, we are still getting 1 to 3 opportunities each day.

The Rogue is also starting to fish well. Mornings have definetly been producing better, but the evenings have been doing ok too.

29" Rogue steelhead

 Spent some time in northern California, all I want to say is that is was good. A few head shots.




Fall is definetly on it's way, these are the days steelheaders dream about all year. Enjoy it.
