Still Going

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.

A Good Trade-Off

Yah it’s true, the number of steelhead in the Deschutes is definitely down this season. The good news is that the average size of the fish have been bigger than normal. This year we have seen a fair bit more two salt fish than normal. Sometimes less fish in the river isn’t always a bad thing. 

It’s just about time to call it good for another season on the Owyhee. Sooner than later the big ole brown trout of the Owyhee will be spawning and that’s when it’s time give them a break and wrap it up until spring. The good thing March is just around the corner which means the Skwala stones aren’t far behind.
