By mid July the North Umpqua should be fishing great. Best fishing in July is 700 ft upstream from Rock Creek all the way up to Bogus Creek. These summer Steelhead are looking up, a perfect time and place to test out your new 7 weight spey rod and a La Follette's Skate'n Fool fly. Also a sparsely tied Low Water Green Butt or Silver Hilton is a great way to follow up should the fish continue to boil but not take your skater.

Keep in mind that weighted flies are not allowed on the North Umpqua. However, weighted lines (sinktips) are now permitted.  With that being said, skaters and floating lines makes much better conversation at the club house!
