Bonneville Counts....

Counts look more than adequate for a great Fall In Ore Ida Wa. I guess now its up to water conditions Temperature and Bureacratic decesions.
My Grand Niece is having here wedding and Reception at my place today, 140 guest for the day should be fun ( I live in Hope) . Sooo that s kept me off the water but by Monday things should be back to normal and away I go.

I hope to get on the Deschutes sometime this fall. Last couple of years have been great, but I haven't been able to get on the river often enough.

Don't get 'em all!

Eric, Moonlight, anyone,
I would love a day on the Deschutes soon, Tracy says I deserve it as I have been working 12 hour days eight days a week, been eating dinner at 8:30 pm. But the house will be ready for us to move in mid September. It's looking really nice but I got to get the fence up. You should see the damn chicken coop, it's 120 sq ft with ceader shakes and hardy plank. Don't ask how that came about other than there was spare materials from the house. May have to put up a sat dish in case I'm thrown out and have to live with the cluckers.

Anyone want to go? We could do it on a mid week hopefully, go over in the evening car camp and be on the river before first light. Would have to be soon though as my Cross country coaching season starts on Sept 6th.

The guy next door said his brothers new to FF landed a fish 5 days in a row so there are fish to be found.
Lets go fishin!
Steve

Eric,
Fill us in on Pine Tree to Heritage. Location, length, conditions.

Thanks
Steve

PS Let's just do it, we need to take some time off as life is not a practice run.

At this time, I'm not sure if I can do a Deschutes trip before late October, but, that being said, Pine Tree to Heritage means floating the river, either by drift boat or raft, from a put-in on the Macks Canyon Access Road (a few miles north of the town of Maupin) and taking out at the mouth, where the Deschutes flows into the Columbia. Typically, it's two nights/three days on the river or three nights and four days on the river. You camp out on the river bank and choose your campsites to be located on good drifts. During the day, you float and fish (wading only) from one campsite to the next.
