Eric, sounds like it was a great family adventure. I'm amazed what a fly way the Deschutes River is as flocks of geese and ducks use the south to north dirrection of the river in their migration route. All morning the honking of geese in tight formation was a sight to see as they headed south.
The fish that were not clipped are they all wild fish or could some of them be hatchery fish maybe from a Native American hatchery where they might not be clipped?
Hope to meet you one of these days maybe when Juro gets his but on a plane and heads out to fish.
