Steve Kyle, Les Vadasz, Jim Powers and I just completed our annual pilgrimage to Southern Oregon, where we spent three soaked days fly-fishing on the Rogue River with our friend and favorite guide, Jim Andras.
The weather was cloudy and cool, and the fishing fair. We each caught and released some steelhead to about eight pounds. The rain came down in buckets on Wednesday and the river started to rise, so we came home a day early.
Except for mid-winter, a combination fishing and theater trip to Ashland is a very nice way to spend a four-day weekend. You can stay in Ashland, take in plays at night, and fish during the day. Your non-fishing partner can choose to join you, or not, depending on his/her preference.
If you go, make sure to call Rachel Andras at Andras Outfitters to arrange your trip. She’ll even make hotel reservations for you. Call her at 530-227-4837.
Steve also reminded me that he had sent me a special live report from Colorado several weeks ago, which I failed to publish. While waiting out a snowstorm, which kept him from skiing, he decided to go fishing. Here is his report:
