THREE-WORD THURSDAY: Twerkin’. Rain. Winters.

After all those naked rain dances to break the dry spell in Southern Oregon, who would have known that a mere $7 investment would have kept Fish Hack from all that  twerkin’ for rain.

No rain for two months, then Fish Hack take The Most Significant Other’s car to the car wash and, boom, it was raining within the hour.

Twerkin’. Rain. Winters.

Never thought Fish Hack would see steelhead bums would be more geeked up about a half-inch of rain than Fish Hack finally putting his tongue back in his mouth. But the rain, and not the exposed taste buds, will get the steelhead season rolling on the Chetco and the Rogue rivers. Peak flows Sunday means time to hit the rivers.

As for the Rogue, there were four legit winter steelhead in the Cole Rivers Hatchery collection pond Wednesday, so the fish are coming. Usually if winters are comin’ early, they’re comin’ often — provided there’s water in Hack’s home waters.
