Barrett, Tye and myself left Eugene at 4am this morning and headed down to the North Umpqua. We’d had some good reports of steelhead coming to the skated dry fly. Matt Sigmeund had a fish come to the surface the prior evening, and clouds were possible for today.
The report goes like this:
A couple of possible bumps, could have been bottom, could have been trout, maybe steelhead
One lost pair of Polarized Smith Optics, ouch
One case of poison oak
Three inadvertant swims with waders on
10 hours of fishless casts.
Great day out on the water with the guys-CD
