Re: Eastern Oregon?
In my oppinion, I would steer clear of the deschutes in less you want to drive north to the Maupin area. I fished the Met last weekend and landed two fish. I loved it, but it is absolutely the hardest river in the area. If you want to catch fish and maybe even have a chance at throwing some dries to rising fish, you have two options - the Fall or the Crooked. Two very different fisheries. You can PM me for more info.
