RE:Springers on a 3 weight?

Just for those of you who want to know the truth...I was with Mr. Sinktip and his report is dangerously accurate and even modest to a degree! And if there's a trip I could be coaxed into, it's late summer and fall on the Deschutes.

Great trip report! Hey... on your comment about the fall, a "Deschutes Classic" clave would be very cool. We have some Deschutes savvy guys on hand. Something to think about...

Whew! Managed to find my way back from the Deschutes and with all my rods in one piece. We had a great time with hot weather, cold beer, peaty single malts and good fishing. Didn't run across any springers but managed to bring a number of redsides up to 17" to hand. There were a few spawned out steelies in the river who entertained us with their ariel acrobatics. I need to figure out how to get back down there some fall and try my luck with the long rod.

Eight days until the rivers open!!!!

'tip, you're S*I*C*K.

I can see you now, gazing forlornly after the departed Springer with the broken pieces of your trout rod dangling in your hands <g> Seriously, I wouldn't do a lot of nymphing with stoneflies if those Springers are in the river!

Then again, there are New Yorkers fishing the Salmon River in Pulaski for Chinook using 6 and 8lb tippet. That might be the perfect challenge - which will break first, your tippet or your rod???

Have fun with the Landlocked Steelhead!

Springers on a 3 weight?

Well it has now been 17 days since I've had a line in the water. Every year once the C and R ends, I go into a fishing funk. This lasts until about this time of the month when I head to Central Oregon for 4 days floating the Deschutes and chasing its redside rainbows. Well the car is packed, the raft loaded and the single malt purchased. In about 5 hours, we point our noses south towards salmon flies and rattlesnakes. I can feel the funk lifting with each passing minute. Then a few minutes ago I log onto a guide's site to check for the latest Deschutes info and he is talking about the large chinook run that is coming into the river. Hmmm, a 3 weight, some 4 pound test and a glow bug???? Take care gang and I'll chat at you next week.
