100 Degrees is just no fun

Alex and I slipped away for a day and a half for a mini fish trip. The main reason was to run away from the 100 degree plus weather in Portland. It wasn’t all that much cooler where we went, but when you are standing in water that feels slightly warmer than an ice cube it sure is nice. The one big thing to bring back from the trip is that fish are not all that keen on dry flies when no bugs are hatching. Probably because they would have gone down in a ball of flames… Frrroossshhhhh. Now that I think of it, I should tie a ball of flame caddis bug.

The van was all loaded up…

We got to the McKenzie at 11pm so bright and early the next day we tried our favorite Trail Bridge spot…

We found a couple of these but no real big ones…

Tried the lower McKenzie and found a few little guys. Did a little dispersed camping at our makeshift sight and tried the North Fork of the Willamette to no avail.

You know what though, we stayed cool.
