There are record numbers of summer steelhead in the Columbia between Bonneville Dam (first counting station) and The Dalles Dam. Fishing in the Deschutes so far has been excellent -- like the 60's and 70"s. I won't be able to hit the Deschutes until September, but, it's hard waiting.

Eric my fishing partners and I actually thought it was some kind of internet hoax or glitch. Thanks for the news links.
Juro with the fishing at NEAH bay underway and the Skeena counts looking solid as well it has the earmarks of being a real fine Fall but Fall always is fine

wow... if I hadn't had to burn so much vacation for divorce related crap I would spent all of my available days off out there this fall. I might borrow some from next year at this rate!

See my Deschutes article on the Forum Home Page. You'll have to scroll down a bit, but the information is still relevant.

Good Fishing

Eric

Gregory, Eric did a great job in his article, must reading for your first trip out. You will enjoy this beautiful country and a grand wide river. But watch out for snakes!

Not sure I like to see all these steelhead. Yeah, I know, bitch when there are no steelhead then complain when there are. Wonder what the counts will be over Lower Granite later in the season? My annual trip to the Ronde was to be cancelled this year because of the ever increasing popularity of the river and a waning interest in steelheading in general on my part. A friend that has never been steelheading in the desert convinced me to make the trip one more time.

Hey Kerry, you old sour puss But I know what you mean. Yesterday found a little trout stream totally covered in heavy dark shade by the house. I think it's going to be one of those " would you like some nice small trout for breakfast to go with the eggs dear"? Flyrod and a can of worms and no crowds except for a few elk, deer and deer flies. Child hood is coming home as life moves on.

I'm sure we'll now hear from BPA and Plum Creek etc that:

1) this proves there is no impact from dams and
2) clearcutting should continue until morale improves

I would reply:

a) can you freakin' imagine what this year would have looked like before dams and erosion????

Up at 4 am and off to the Deschutes for 1st trip out. Still dark when I stepped into river but could see the river had no vis. Blew out yesterday I guess from white river and two days of hot weather. Should have known better but the excitment of steelheading got the best of me. Will wait for cooler weather before going again. Fish counts remain strong.
