    It's hard to beat monster white fish on the madison that barrels out into the current and starts making you arm wrestle it, LOL I love that river and the 50 plus fish days it offers

    Even though the Rogue River is noted for its steelhead runs (and I spend a LOT of time chasing these fellows) my vote would go to the fall king run. Quite something to be 'targeting' 5# steelhead and have a 30# king jump on your fly. Which, unlike the spring king run, they do with gusto!

    I'll have to agree with fredaevans, the Rogue's fall run kings are awesome on the fly. That and the salmonfly hatch up at the Holy Water is one not to be missed.

    Wild Trout first because there such sluts when it comes to the fly. then Cutties, Browns and Dollies in that order.
