I spent a few hours on the Rogue this past Saturday fishing for some salmon.
It was a really nice day for fishing, overcast mid 50's although it was a bit windy.
I got on the river about 1p and went down stream. at first I just started to fish obvious holding water and behind boulders. Nothing.
I moved further down stream and spotted some salmon hanging out. I was fishing C&D with a egg fly and a green caddis. They were not interested in what I had to offer. I switched up egg colors and tried a few different nymphs. I have learned that either I am not fishing the C&D method right or I just don't like that it. I kept getting hung up on the rocks on the bottom of the stream, I was changing weight and it just seemed like I couldn't get it right.
As I kept moving down stream, I ran into a half dozen fish holding on a redd. I abandoned the C&D and tied on a streamer and fished that and the salmon were interested. I ended up hook 2 of them hogs with no luck hauling them in.
I promised the wife that I would be home around 6p so I hiked back to the car.
It was a great day on the water, it was much needed.
