First time poster, have checked the board often. My wife and I will be retiring in two years and are looking at Bend as a possible place to move (from Pennsylvania). This summer we will be out West (visiting our daughter in Washington) and there (Bend) for a day or two. I wanted to know if the fishing right in Bend proper was any good. I realize there are up stream and downstream Deschutes locations that could produce, but this trip will be part checking out the town, part checking 'the scene', with a few hours to wet a line. So what's the story? Above or below the dam in town? Other places? Appreciate any tips. Thanks.
