While I have had a crazy season with my attempts at winter steelhead. Only one fish hoooked way back in December. It was not for lack of trying. I went out several times, but hey I guess that’s steelheading, right?
So with the reports of the coastal rivers being crazy low Alex and I hit up the Deschutes. I was so happy to be back on my favorite river. The day proved a bit rough with the crazy wind. There were a few times I was almost knocked over and you could not stand near any whitewater for fear of getting a sideways shower. We did manage a few trout, which seeing as you could only cast a rods length or so and that if you had any line of the water the wind would pick your flies right out of the water, was pretty good.
All in all it was just great to get out there and get a fish to hand.
