Question N. Umpqua

Anyone have any recent info on the North Ump.? Is it still too early? I'm dying to get down there and don't know if I can wait til February, which is when my friends and I are planning on going. Anything? PM if necessary.
Thanks!

I am very interested in hearing what comes of your post. I have really been bitten by the "lore & beauty" of this river. I am thinking that I am going to try for either March or July, but we'll see what happens!

I have found myself searching for some good reading material on this system, having started w/ Trey Combs' book. My next mission is for the Steelhead River Journal: North Umpqua, but that is proving difficult.

Would love to hear about your trip!!!

Cheers,

Alonzo

The river is high and off color. It fishes well in Jan but you have to know the river well. I would talk to Tony at summerrun.net

Another question for you: Is there any free camping close to the river. I noticed that all the CGs are closed for the season, and I even saw that Whistler's Bend is closed to camping right now? That seemed strange. I don't mind staying in Glide but would like to be close to the fly-only water. I sleep in my VW, so I figure I could find a place to park for the night, but would also like to have a fire, if possible.
Thanks,
GC

Gin,


Pull down into the Baker park area and you should be able to park that Vee Dub any where down there and sleep. Probably have a fire if you want too.It is in the lower fly water, a ways up from the Deadline pool. You could always go across the bridge @ Wright Creek and check that out. Heck with a VW van you can darn near go anywhere, just poke around a bit and you will find a cool spot, no worries. If it's super crappy and you want a cheap room go to the Dogwood Motel it is in the lower fly water as well, just above Honey Creek.
