1-13-11 Rogue River
The next day after catching that beatiful Steelhead, i decided i needed a new steelhead rod. I went to Bi-mart and bought a 9’6 Okuma Celilo. It’s a very affordable rod at $50, and apparently part of the proceeds goto the NorthWest Sportfishing Industry Association (NSIA). Thursday i went back to the spot i caught my steelhead two days earlier. But on this day the Rogue River didnt look the same, I noticed right away it was high, brown, and raging. I reluctantly stepped into the brown water, two days earlier i could see where i was stepping. Casting my spoon ended up with some type of debris on my hook almost every cast. After about a half hour i decided to leave and go up river where its alot calmer near the dam. I went up to Casey State Park and the water was much nicer but still had some brown to it. I fished up there for a couple hours until it got dark. Didnt have any luck, but did catch a snag and the bottom a few times 😀 until next time… Tight Lines!
