Pat Hoglund lands a monster Deschutes steelhead

They Do Exist… But the water has gone wild.

Nice one for Pat Hoglund Of the Salmon Steelhead Journal.

The Deschutes water levels have gone kinda wild. But this happens every year. On October 15 the irrigation is shut off and release back into the Deschutes river. On top of the fact we received our first rain storm in what seems like and eternity in the Cascades. We instantly got high water.

Just remain clam and the river will slowly begin to fish and few but frisky fish in the river will be back on the bite. Here are a few pictures of some fish and other things I thought you might enjoy.
