2014 WINTER STEELHEAD SEASON
Winter Steelhead season is here. It is the second week of the new year and we finally have gotten some rain in our Southern Oregon Steelhead rivers. The past month most anglers have been targeting these fresh fish down stream near the coast. Both the Umpqua River and the Rogue River have been seeing good numbers of fish. This small but much needed flush of rain water will get these fish moving up into our fishing grounds. Our most productive techniques for this time of year are side drifting cured roe and running plugs above the breaks. We are using 9' 6-10 lb Lamiglas noodle rods for drift fishing and 7'6" 10-15 lb Lamiglas plug rods. These are top of the line rods that give you a great feel while fighting the fish and are sensitive enough to feel the bite. We have some great dates available later this month for both the Umpqua River System and our home waters here on the Rogue River. We also have some lodging packages available for multi day fishing trips.
