Fished the North Umpqua below Rock creek today. The day started out gray and a little cool, looked ideal for fishing. Fished all morning and only fish was a 14" maybe baby steelhead on a red Wiggle Wart. (see pic) About noon the sun came out and so did the fish. Had a 5 pounder on a silver Wiggle Wart that managed to slip off the hook. About 1 pm I was casting into some rapids and I landed a 23" steelie on a black Blue Fox. 10 mintues later I changed to a Blue Fox with a black sparklie body and nickle blade that has a touch on green on it. Both were #4's, and a hard fighting 27" found that second spinner hard to resist. I like the Blue Fox because they're easy to find and not to expensive. They seem to run well for me. I like to throw them up stream and just get them to turn over and run them straight down steam. That's how I caught both of these fish. Sorry my pic was self timed and got sun blurred.
