It’s way late in the season for trout, but an unseasonably dry couple of weeks in Oregon has put a pause in the anadromous fish action on the coast. I figured the past few sunny days and +50 temperatures would be enough to get trout moving on the Middle Fork and roped a skeptical Karl into chasing them.
We headed straight to Oakridge, post-brunch time to catch the heat of the day. And we hooked about fifteen fish in and above Salmon Creek. Karl pulled a couple of fish on dry flies, but most of the fish were caught on a possy bugger on an indicator.
There were a few October Caddis around and I caught a whitefish. You can see from the first shot that I’m pretty surprised to be catching fish at all.
