Ahhhh the Deschutes curse has finally been lifted for me! Been here for over a week. The White has been a big problem but can be overcome by fishing big black winter patterns. Nothing on top yet all the fish have come from fishing deep.

Eric thanks again for last year.... it made the learning curve much shorter this year. The two hander is really starting to feel second nature at this point.

Setting out to float Pine Tree to Heritage again this afternoon. If anyone is on the river from now until Friday look for the guy in the maroon kick boat with a dog on the back and give a wave

Way to go Dave! Have you hooked any wild fish? I'm still going to wait for clearer water so I can fish a floating line on top.

Looking forward to seeing you all in September and moonlight maybe we can head on over to the Snake sometime after they stop letting water out of the dam. Looking forward to one of those wonderful days like old when one could hook 4 or five fish on first pass through and all on top too. With so many fish headed that way I worry about snagging fish using a floating line and an OC.

8 to 10 thousand a day over the Dalles. Weather a bit rainy and cool this holiday weekend which means glacier melt on Hood will have slowed down. This following week could be good.

Well it has started. One day of 10,000 plus over lower granite and several with 4 to 6 thousand steelhead. Seems they are arriving early also. My trip to the Ronde in a few weeks could be very productive. I hate to complain but I sure hope the angler counts don't rise with the steelhead counts. It already seems crowded at the Ronde. I will need to put on my happy face when some guide has his clients running spoons with a fly rod in the middle of my water from his drift boat. Gee, hope you catch something and now get the hell away from me. Whoops, excuse me, did I cast over you line?

Sounds like things will be best in September this year unless things dry up. Hmm.... my plans may have to change.
