On the brink of one of the oddest elections in our nations history, all I can do is turn to fly fishing. Like a new season brought forth with excitement, and change, Also come uncertainty. The last couple of seasons on the Deschutes have been tough to say the least. A number of reasons and theories and wild ass guesses I have had bend my ear. The truth is not a single one of us knows why or what to do about it. Pontificating ideas that pushes no course of action seems to be what we do best, as anglers. The only other thing I know is that if you don’t fish your odds of getting any just went to zero.

Chase the steelhead they have seen hard times before I am sure. I once heard a wise angler say that he was amazed we even had the opportunity to fish for steelhead after the way we treated our resources in the past. I will continue to push forward swinging flies no matter how tough it gets and I suggest a few of you come along with me. We may all learn a few thing, have a few laughs, and yes we may even catch a couple steelhead, lol.

Not everything below the surface is a steelhead...

Sweet July Summer Steelhead!

Well here it is now almost mid July. Only days from full blown steelhead season. It has been on my mind and a few other folks as well. If you have not made your plans to fish the Deschutes this Fall with AWA, better shoot us an email. Space is limited as it is and those looking for camp trips might be out of luck until later in the season. Water conditions are looking good and with this cooler spring we are having the Fall could be shaping up really nicely. Don’t wait too long, the time to start getting ready for this season steelhead is now, look forward to hearing from you soon.

Summer Steelhead don't get much fresher, In july they are steaming!
