Umpqua River Fishing

Image
The fishing and the weather have been amazing the past few week. We are seeing steady numbers of fresh fish entering the river systems. Plenty of hatchery fish around to bring joy to your brain and belly. We have been getting all of our fish side drifting yarn and eggs in the fast and slow water. The peak of the winter steelhead season is upon us now and if you haven't got your fill of the tug drug you better act now.BONK





Smith River Fishing

We have been bouncing around fishing a lot of different rivers and here is the latest report. The Smith, Klamath, Umpqua, and Rogue rivers are all producing good numbers of steelhead. We participated in the Rowdy Creek Enhancement Derby this year and found some metal in the river that flows through the giant redwood trees. All of our fish came from side drifting yarn and eggs, the water was pretty heavy and if you weren't on the bottom you weren't fishing. The rivers are in shape and pretty crowded with chrome inhabitants. You still have a month to feel the steel.



Umpqua River Fishing

Spent the weekend chasing steelhead in southern Oregon, and did well. The rivers were very busy but all of the guides were seeing 5 to 10 fish a day. The bait, yarn, and fly's all produced fish. The larger river systems are just starting to come into shape and are stuffed full of fish. We seen fish come out of fast riffles, deep holes, and tail-outs. It looks like things are shaping up to be a pretty good winter steelhead season. The early high water allowed the fish to get up the rivers and spreed out before they got to beat up. The Klamath, Rogue, and Umpqua rivers are all seeing above average numbers of steelhead this year so you better get off your &%@ and put a line in the water. We have 6 days left to book this season, if you want to see some of these silver bullets on the end of your line you should call ASAP.
