Welcome back to Haiku Monday, where Fish Hack is decked out in shorts and flip-flops waiting for nature to put the winter back into winter steelhead fishing.
Steelead fishing and sunscreen are a fine mix on Fish Hack’s home waters of the upper Rogue — in July. But February?
What do you expect when there’s more snow in Boston Harbor than at Diamond Lake and Lake of the Woods combined.
Knocking climate change?/Round world once just a “theory.”/Don’t drive off the ledge.
For you few Haiku Monday virgins out there, this is when and where Fish Hack waxes on and off non-Brazilian style about the outdoors or whatever the hell else comes to mind, with some irreverent versions of bad Japanese poetry sprinkled in as the schtick.
So temps hitting 70 and a piss-poor snowpack has Tax Deduction No. 1 and his snowboarding elk wheelin’ it to Bend every weekend to get in competitions that should be on Mt. A.
It’s also making it difficult to ply the upper Rogue for winter steelhead because out-flows at Lost Creek Lake are down to the bare mid-winter minimum
Rain’s coming Friday. That should get things hoppin’…much better than the rockin’ of that VW park on the TouVelle boat ramp last week.

Steelheading in the sun/Good for fishing, bad for fish./Bad dilemma here.
