Despite high water North Umpqua produces some nice fish over the weekend

Caddis Fly guide Jeff Carr found some gorgeous winter steelhead this weekend on the North Umpqua. The river is running a bit high but still fishable. Jeff was swinging articulated leaches on this Sage 13′ #7 z-axis spey rod.  His line choice was a Skagit 450 spey line with a 15′ type 8 sink tip. Prognosis for the North Umpqua is great, water is dropping and fish numbers are going up.
