All those ties have low water Summer Run Steelhead written all over them.

Bring a pocket full of them if you get to fish the upper Rogue River in late August through September.

On the Rogue you can use a two fly system/rig during the fly only season. What I do is #1 will be on a weighted size 6 or 8 hook and your 'bug' will be about 18 - 20 inches behind. The first gets everything down, and the follow up one is the one that gets the fish 90% of the time.

Default Re: a few simple stonefly nymphs

sounds like typical dropper rig tactics work in your waters too...what size should the caboose be?? maybe a 6 or 8...or is that too big...that might be where the difference comes in...ususlly we use a size 14-18 for the dropper...

btw Fred...you are my 100th post...just saw that...thanks...t

Back end fly will be a #10 ... on occasion a 12. Call is how low is the river flow.
End game is a 10 will hook/hold a summer run; a 12 is highly questionable..
