Steelhead numbers excellent on the North Umpqua

Winter steelhead continue to head upstream in a high and cold North Umpqua. While this is prime time for the fly fishing only section of the river, high water has made things tough. As I write this the river has come down a bit. At Glide the reading is under 4000 cubic feet per second. Go a bit higher, just below the Steamboat Creek confluence, “the camp water” and you will find the water in better shape,  clear and very fishable. Egg patterns, articulated leaches, MOAL leaches, and Veiled Assasins are good patterns.
