My name is Dustin and I am new to OFF. Glad I found this website! There is some really great info here from people who are obviously very passionate about fishing in Oregon.
My wife and I have been fishing during the morning and early afternoons on Sundays near Bend recently and are not having any luck at all. We just fished Dillon Falls and Little Lava Falls yesterday. Had a "nibble" here and there but they just weren't interested. Tried lots of different gear too. Is there a particular spot on the Deschutes that would be more productive... maybe somewhere even closer to town? I've even been hearing stories of the fishing around Tumalo State Park. Also thinking about doing some bank fishing at one of the Cascade lakes or one of the lakes to the south of Bend. Not sure if they are good to hit yet or wait and stick to the Deschutes for a few more weeks. Anyone having luck anywhere near Bend? Care to give some gear tips for gear that is working at any of those spots? I just need to get my wife into some fish to help keep her interest level up. She is really wanting to fish this year. Don't want her to loose interest in our Sunday fishing outings! Just need to find 1 or 2 solid spots.
Also, we live in Redmond and I have been looking for a spot around here to do an hour or two of afternoon/evening fishing during the week. Anyone having any luck around Cline Falls? Tetherow, Lower Bridge, and Steelhead Falls are a little further away from my house but I have been thinking about going over there too... possibly on an evening when I have a little longer night to fish. Any spot tips around Redmond would be highly appreciated! Also any gear tips for the water around here would be great too.
