Late last week the N. Umpqua dropped into great shape and the fishing picked up. Wednesday-Saturday yielding results for many of the anglers on the river. Late Saturday the river starting rising back up, cold water from low elevation snow melt making it difficult to get the fish to move to a fly. In addition higher water made the already difficult N. Umpqua even more difficult to wade. The Umpqua is never a great place to take a swim in your waders, add super cold high water to the equation and it becomes dangerous. There are plenty of fish in the system and they are still moving up river. Watch the levels, when the Umpqua starts to heading back down it will be time to go.
