Fall is by far my favorite time of the year to be on the Deschutes. There are still plenty of trout still willing to play, or you can fish for the ever elusive steelhead. When we hit the river yesterday we weren't sure if we wanted to fish for trout or steelhead. So we decided to string up a nymph rod and see what would bite.
We ended up landing several of really nice trout and one willie steelhead.
Seems like it was the right decision.
