I think I fish, in part, because itís an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. ĖJohn Gierach

Lightbulb I think you should consider a relocation.

From almost any place in Medford you can be fishing the Rogue in about 30 minutes.

Yes even a generally soggy part of the temperate UK we had a frost this morning, must have been a bit of a shock for the sand martins which have been here for a week or two & the swallows which are just arriving from Africa.

Still there are some decent hatches of sedges on the river when it warms up in the sun later in the day which they are making the most of, so they shouldn't go hungry & can start building up weight & condition after their' migration prior to the breeding season starting.

Other than this blip I think Spring is finally here.

Regards, Tyke.

It definitely is lovely here in oregon right now. It's 82 as I sit on my back porch watching the lizards chasing ants. The caddis and blue wing olives have the trout rising and the salmonflies will soon start emerging. It's a wonderful time of the year to be a fly fisherman.

Aarghh! Fred, you should know better. Unless you sell real estate, the boom in Oregon's population is not a good thing. Back Eddy - welcome to Colorado. Now is a good time to visit the Dream Stream stretch of the So. Platte, or Spinney at ice out. Sorry to say, once the runoff starts, your rivers are going to be muddy messes until July. But, there's always the reservoirs. Fishing in Oregon stinks.

Not to worry '23,' not to worry. Save for the Portland, down I-5 to Salem, there are very few of us. Medford (tad north of the California bord.) has a really small population so, save the 'hot spots' you've pretty much got the Rogue to your self.

Only time you really see fishing pressure is when the Spring King run hits the upper river (Hatchery area) in June-July; most of the 'lead chucker's' are in the top half mile of the river. There you have 'combat fishing!' So fly guys just move down stream a half mile (or less) and you've (just about) got the whole place to your self.

Edit: Few more days of warm weather then back to high 60's.
