A couple of weeks ago bigsteel and I spent three days on the Deschutes, two of them with Brian Silvey. Another successful and awesome trip. There is just something about that river that keeps us going back....

This could be why:
Sunrise on the Deschutes

Beautiful scenery and imported mountain sheep

My fish. The first one was my all time best on the big D....it took me almost to my backing 3 times. I don't know who was more excited, me or Brian...

The whole time we were there our neighbors kept floating by....:lol:

I think bigsteel has some more....I can't remember how many fish we caught but it was in the neighborhood of 40ish.

Oh and we seen a lot of snakes. In fact as I went up a trail one came out of the brush, across the toe of my boot and into the bushes.....luckily it wasn't a rattler.....but we did see a few of those and a huge bull snake.......

What a great trip! I'm excited and I wasn't even there. My wife leaves me again on Tuesday for a couple weeks in AZ and I won't go even if my two granddaughters are there! I'm planning a trip east of the mountains and will spend at least one day on the Deschutes.

Very cool you "guys"! Awesome report and excellent photos as well! Glad you had an outstanding day!

Congrats on the personal best trout Lilsalmon! There is nothing more exciting to me about fishing then hearing and seeing that spool spinning around at warp speed just as the backing starts to show!

But, if he didn't run like a track star from the wrong kind of snake. The next thing Dave would see would BE God!

I really love that river too. It is a invaluable gift and treasure to have such a iconic and productive river in our state and close by.

I hit the trifecta on that river last week. A rainbow, cuttie and brown in one night. Love that river.
