Default Road Trip to Bend, OR

The wife and I drove out to Bend, OR last week and had a great time visiting with old friends. On the way out we stopped and spent the night in Swan Valley, ID and did a little fishing with Kelly (he had to leave early for a dinner engagement), we didn't catch anything but we both had a couple missed opportunities and best of all he showed me the famous spring creek. While in Bend we did an afternoon trip to the Deshutes River where I caught a nice brown trout. On the way back to Swan Valley we stopped at the Saddle Sore Saloon for some great hamburgers (Fysh had recommended, thanks for the tip!). I fished on the South Fork a couple hours before it got dark, hooked into a nice trout that did an LDR on me in the fast current. Here are some photos:
