Rogue River Wild / Scenic Stretch

I'm off to the Rogue this Sunday. I'm wondering what fly's to bring? I think the 1/2 lb'ers will be in and the Steelhead should be there too. I'll likely focus on Steelhead, and swing all day long...

So what do they like? I fish the Deschutes a lot and have tons of small Steelhead flies, and I have a small collection of skaters.

The float is a new one for me too. Should be a challenge.

Your Deschutes flies will work just fine for the adult steelhead. There are a ton of traditional Rogue patterns that exist. Red Ant's, etc.

The half pounders really like swung nymphs like Posse Buggers, Mega Prince's, etc.

+1 here. Anything that will work on the Deschutes will work well on the Rogue. Just keep you fly sizes in the 8 to 12's for half pounders.

Thanks, I'll look for some red ants and some nymphs. Going to be a great adventure and new places to fish. I think I will treat myself to a night or two in one of the lodges as well.
