Bare in mind with a 3#, I've caught 19 inch Cutts on the Wilson. But you also may catch 10 pound steelhead by accident. So be careful and have fun.
I've done that twice, and I broke my rod tips riding into a tree! I swore to myself I'll never do that again. Both times the fishing was slow, but I've also learned a lot since then. Do you ride at Rocky Point?mattsavage said:Great post! Thanks!
Have you parked at the Deschutes River State Park (at the confluence of the columbia) and ridden the trail up from there, fishing the lower,lower section? Thats my goal this spring, do some bikepacking up there during the stone/salmonfly hatch. I've heard the fishing isn't as hot as up at warm springs or trout creek or maupin, but since its roadless I can't imagine it gets that much pressure either, other than boaters.
So far I've only hit the Deschutes once this winter, before Xmas. Probably below average results for the area. a lot of work in $hitty conditions. Like 34 degree sloppy wet snow and wind all weekend. But, beats sitting around the house.
Yeah, I used to, quite a bit. Since it was so hot this summer and fall, and since i picked up fly fishing, I decided to spend more time in cool streams with the doggos, its easier on them (and me). Honestly, i'm not super missing slogging away up those climbs, or any of the climbs we have around here... But, this spring i will start using the bike more to get me out to more areas. A natural progression from gravity to chill rides as i get older...brokencoastal said:I've done that twice, and I broke my rod tips riding into a tree! I swore to myself I'll never do that again.
