Summer Steelhead on the North Umpqua

While fishing the North Umpqua, one can’t help but to feel saturated by the traditions of fly fishing for steelhead. The river truly has a soul. A soul that is fueled by the legends that have waded her jade water, and cast a fly to her lovely steelhead. Many of these legends are gone now, though a few still test themselves against one of the most challenging fisheries in existence. Guys like Frank Moore and Joe Howell are still everyday fixtures on the "North". There are many others, though a whole book could be written on the river’s personalities. Men and women who have shaped the thoughts and traditions of our sport today. And then there are the modern day pioneers like guide Scott Howell. Plying the same famous ‘Camp water" that Zane Grey and Major Jordon Lawrence Mott fished in the 1930's.
