Umpqua Fly-FishingThe North Umpqua River provides challenges for every season. Cascading whitewater and deep blue bedrock studded runs grace the North Fork providing picturesque opportunity for fly rodders in search of summer run steelhead from five to fifteen pounds. The thirty miles of fly only water are much the same today as when Zane Grey sated piscatorial urges here decades ago. These sea-run rainbows arrive in earnest from late June to the end of October and can be taken with skating drys or swung wets just under the surface. The North is not a fishery for those who shy from challenge. Wading can be tricky, but here reward is commensurate with effort. The dynamic explosion of a large healthy fish attempting to rip the reel from its seating combined with some of the most scenic landscape in the West makes for an adrenaline rush and memorable angling. Late winter and early spring finds winter run steelhead available in the North Fork as a precursor to a healthy fall chinook run. These are selective biters and not for the angler who is short on patience.
