STEELHEAD

Saturday a dozen Steelhead fisherman got together to learn and relearn the subtleties of steelhead fishing.  There are differences between Summer Steelhead and Winter Steelhead.  There are different methods to extract these wonderful fish from their watery haunts. Alex Rachowicz and John MacDiarmid were on hand to discuss these methods and fhe locations where one is more likely to hook up with a steelhead.  It was an information loaded two hours.  Alex owns the Rogue Valley Anglers fly shop in Medford.  John is an IFFF certified casting instructor.

Green Belt Riparian Zones



A Riparian Zone is the ribbon of vegetation adjacent to a shoreline or stream bank. The grasses, shrubs and trees are typically different varieties than the surrounding area. The riparian plant life is able to tolerate or needs a wetter environment. Usually these areas provide a home for an abundant variety of wildlife. Many creatures live their entire lives completely within a riparian zone. More info at this link http://rogueflyfishers.org/riparian.htm

Your First Steelhead

An introduction to how to catch a Rogue Steelhead


If you are curious about how to catch a Rogue Steelhead or you have caught a few and are not happy with your catch rate, you will want to attend this informal "how to class".

Club members Alex Rachowicz and John Mac Diarmid will present this class on how to rig and fish for steelhead in the Rogue River.

The class will be at the picnic side of Tou Velle upstream of the bridge on Saturday, August 27 at 10:00 a.m.  It will cost you $4 for parking. We will cover equipment for swinging the fly with the spey rod and nymphing under an indicator with a single hand rod. We’ll also cover a few access spots. 
This is your chance to become addicted to Steelhead!!!
