Hello from the Willamette,
Tina and I hope this finds you well. Since mid-January our weather patterns have been somewhat normal. My winter steelhead season was one of the best I have had in 3-4 years.
I’m just wrapping up my Columbia, Willamette, spring Chinook Salmon season. Once the water warmed to 48 degrees in the Columbia fishing was unbelievable, in the Columbia that is. It’s comforting to know that even in 2014 we can have huge fish runs (let’s just hope man does not screw it up somehow). Spring fishing in the Willamette has been fair we are catching fish everyday but not the numbers we would like to see. I have 2 weeks left then we are off to the Deschutes River!
Everything looks good for the Deschutes. I think we are going to see favorable water levels and our weather patterns appear to be normal, these are both key for good bug hatches, which relates to trout on your fly.
We always look forward to our Deschutes season. I love the river, and the fishery. Most of our guest have become friends and I always look forward to seeing them and of course my crew; Bob, Guy, Andrew ,Johnny and Harry. We have 3 prime dates available; June 4-6 (great salmon fly date). June 11-13 and June 29-July 1st (both great caddis fly dates). Don’t miss this great trout fishing opportunity. The Deschutes is Oregon’s greatest trout fishing opportunity, so come and join us on the Deschutes River.
We also have 3 Grande Ronde River trips scheduled this June and as always we look forward to fishing the Grande Ronde. When the river is right it’s some of the best trout fishing we get to experience throughout the year. It’s also a beautiful river with spectacular camp sites and views, for me and crew it is truly a joy to be able to float and fish the Grande Ronde. We do have availability for late June or early July.
Don’t forget that summer is just around the corner and if you have not done so, please check out http://www.rrotrips.com for Rogue River fishing and Rafting opportunities.
