Whether it is swinging for winters on the North Umpqua or local trout fishing, my Mom always has a good time and our most recent trip on the MFW was no different . We knew that the conditions would not be optimal as the water levels were rising fast and a tributary was putting in some serious color. The expertise of the angler made up for the clarity with precise drifts and swift hook sets. Way to go Mom!
