    Thumbs down Upper Rogue River here in Southern Oregon.

    Winter Steelhead took their sweet time to show up. As of the end of March we had 5326 through the (one and only on the entire river system) 'counter.' Sounded like this was going to be a 'down in the dumps' year for fish returns.

    A week and a half of strong storms through the area dumping tons of rain/snow and Good Lord! Did 'they' get with the program!!

    In just a tad over 30 days the 'fish count' went from 5300 to OVER 14,000

    Pisser is I'm moving from Ashland about 25 miles to the NE to White City and I'm up to my butt in packing boxes. Zero time to spend on the river.

    Is that the 'pits,' or what?

    A drift from Rogue Elk to Takelma (or Shady to Dodge) is in order for you. I bet you are wishin' that you had time to swing bunny leech (or your favorite swing fly) at them.

    If I had time, I'd get myself up there with my PAC 1000, Euro 6126, and all my Rogue fishing goodies. Gosh darn commitments! I feel your pain, FAE.

    As Nate mentioned, our river fishing conditions couldn't be better for fly fishing. Low and clear which 'jams' up the fish into all too obvious water. Out a couple of afternoons ago and had two in less than an hour.
