Saturday the 27th concluded a week of fly fishing in Central Oregon. If had I known the fishing was going to be this good at the Fall River, I think I would have camped here the whole time (well almost). We pulled into the Fall River fish hatchery for lunch then started walking up stream. The water was gin clear and large rainbow trout were highly visable. Some were under logs near the bank and others were out in the open. Every now and then one would rise and nab something floating by. It was hard to tell what the meals were because of the small size. I thought I saw a fish take something brown so I decided on a #18 March Brown dry fly. It worked. Sight fishing is a thrill. Positioning a fly so it is on course to float over the fish then watch the take is a magic moment! Even though our time there was brief, the experience was memorable.
