North Umpqua

Hey everyone. Anyone been fishing the NU lately. I was there about a month ago for a week, only had 3 fishable days, but now the water looks absolutely perfect considering it's March. I'm thinking about heading down there asap. Just wondering if anyone has done any good there in the past week or so. Take care.

Talked to Joe this week and he said there are fish but they are kinda tough- flows are actually not all that low - they are getting pretty good snow melt. He was out a day or so ago and spotted fish. I keep saying I am going up there in the winter but rarely make it - maybe this year?

I fished the N Umpqua Fri, 12th and Tues, 16th; conditions looked perfect; Fri about 4800 cfs at Winchester, clear 44 degrees; I had one good pull in upper Susan Cr, but didn't hook up. That was it for my partner & I for the day. On Tues, water lower 3600 cfs, otherwise similar. I landed a nice wild buck at Clay Cr in the afternoon, but that was the only hit for my partner & me. That fish was a summer fish, all dressed up & ready to go to the prom, although it hadn't spawned yet. We did see a few fish, but not all that many. Supposed to be 5000 over Winchester & fishing has been reported as fair to good in the bait section. Larry Levine, friend & guide who lives on the river says 3/4 of the fish he's caught this winter are summer fish. He thinks, for some unknown reason, they just haven't moved into the upper river yet. Certainly that was the way it appeared based on my recent 2 day sample. Having said that, it was so beautiful I didn't mind the lack of action as much as I might have under other circumstances.

Thanks for the report Jay. A friend and I were down there for 4 days about 3 weeks ago and only had 1 tug, the water was only marginally fishable then. I post here if I go but it sounds as if the run might take a little longer to get into the fly water.
