Dude I fly fish regularly. I know this spot on the deschutes. It’s pretty much the only way to fish IMO.
Howdy friends. I've been skipping the club meetings for Covid safety but just trying to enjoy all of the sunny weekends we've been having, even if I have to drive to the coast or inland to find them. Got a shellfish license and harvested some mussels, got myself a basic fly fishing setup and learning about a different way to stand in a body of water and drink beer.

Yea. Everyone starts somewhere. I fished my whole life on gear. Switched over about 8 years ago. The crowds can be easily avoided if you know where to go. There are still great fish in that river now. Just read that water and present that fly well and you’ll be golden! Well have to get out sometime.I'm 100% a noob to fly fishing, grew up spin casting in fresh and salt water but I'm enjoying the challenge so far. Planning to get enough practice in before the season so I can actually catch some fish once it warms up. The Deschutes is beautiful although I hear it really gets packed in the summer.
