Lots to Do and Time is Running Out - Be Ready For It To All Melt Down!

This is the time of the year when you can get overwhelmed with what to fish for. You can go to the lower Deschutes and swing for steelhead. You can swing for steelhead in the McKenzie, Willamette, Clackamas, Santiams, Etc. You can smallmouth bass fish on the Umpqua or John Day. Sea Run Cutts are starting to make their way into coastal streams, and they create a fun opportunity to test your 5wt. Large mouth bass in the ponds and lakes are in prime shape now too, and throw some bluegills in the mix. Carp on the Columbia River shorelines can make for some fun and technical spot fishing. How about saltwater silvers or rockfishing by the rocks. Surf perch on the calmer swelled ocean days. Hmmmm......These are just some of the more obvious opportunities that we have, and mix in the trout fishing all over that I did not really throw into the mix. We have a lot of fly fishing to be had before the fall and winter roll around; making salmon and steelhead the obvious choice of angling fare.

  1. Hi Brian,

    I'm checking out your blog and just wanted to say hi. I met you at the Orvis shop a few weeks ago. We talked about all kinds of stuff and have a mutual friend in Rich Youngers (if you remember to conversation . . . I'm on the short side with a grey beard). Anyway, nice site.
