Posts: 2It was a great to trip to the Upper Rogue River (in beautiful Southern Oregon) over this past weekend. I took a 3wt glass rod and a 5wt graphite rod with me and hiked about 45 minutes down into a little canyon that the river flows through.

I had my daughter with me and a good friend from work and we all decided to camp for the night so we could hit the morning hatch. We arrived on Friday evening just in time to set up camp and get geared up. The trout were biting like crazy! Rising to anything over a size 10 hook, they were feeding on a salmon fly hatch that we were not expecting.

Dinner was good that night! Nothing under 10".

The next morning though, it seemed like the river dried up. In 2 hours of fishing, I didn't get one grab or see a single rise! I started with the Stimulator pattern... nothing. I switched to a Parachute Adams with a Prince Nymph dropper... nothing. Finally I went to a Griffith's Gnat because of what appeared to be a million gnats flying around everywhere... nothing.

Maybe we caught them all the night before ;) Fun trip though!

What a beautiful river you've got there. As for your lack of success the second's weird sometimes. Who knows, but they were probably too full of salmonflies to care about anything else.

Thanks for posting!

Your Rogue is a bit faster (and has some real rocks...not cobble) than our version here in Michigan. Great pictures of a beautiful trout stream, I'd like to fish it before I get too old to wade.
