Have lived in Portland, OR for nearly 20 years and finally got to fish on the Metolius River in Central Oregon and caught some redband trout. According to the locals, it is an offshoot of the rainbow trout and are only found in certain parts of Washington, Oregon and Idaho.
Regardless, it is a very cool looking fish. They don't get very big but they put up a pretty good fight.
Got to fish the river for 3 days with moderate success with my brother and nephew but on the final hours of our last day, we found the perfect hole and were pulling out fish left and right.
My brother figured out the right combination of tippet and fly and the fish just pounded it. The only downside was that it was raining so hard that we didn't get any photos
We will definitely be going back there again!
