Re: 9'/#5 Burkheimer, Method, Radian, Solar

Re: How would you approach/fish this situation?

Re: oregon fly fishing info.

The Portland area rivers are pretty low and warm by then. It's the Deschutes for steelhead and the Metolius for trout might be good. The Metolius would be a nice two night trip. The river stays...

Re: Moving to the NW E/SE of Portland this year

Hi Les,
Speaking of the winter steelhead run, the fish haven't shown up yet. The broad runs of the lower Sandy and Clackamas fish well with a spey rod because a large fly and sink tip line can be...

Re: Boody Moisture
