Fishin' News & Views - November 2017

November 21-

Just a reminder that now would be a good time to be thinking about getting gift certificates for the fishermen/women on your Christmas list this year.

Give me a shout via email or phone and I will quickly send out a nicely printed G.C. for you to put under the tree for them to use in the upcoming 2018 season.

Whether it’s Walleye, Sturgeon, Salmon or Steelhead, any and all would greatly appreciate a gift to go on a guided fishing trip!

And remember that we also do (non-fishing) Guided Tours on the Deschutes River for a fun and exciting Jet Boat ride, which includes some history and unique wildlife photo opportunities!

More information is available on our web site,and be sure to watch our Facebook page for photos of happy fisher folks holding their catch!

The Deschutes steelhead fishery was off to a slow start, but it is getting better all the time as the counts over the dams increase and the water temperatures greatly improve. The salmon counts are also getting much better and action off the mouth of the Deschutes is improving too.
September and October should prove to be good fishing!

Hi all.
I have been waiting to hear the final rulings on the summer/fall salmon and steelhead fisheries, so it appears to be just what was suspected. In a nutshell, the only effect that it has on our trips is in the fact that we will not be able to keep any hatchery steelhead in the Columbia in the month of September from The Dalles Dam to the John Day Dam.

This will not affect our steelhead fishery up the Deschutes or the salmon fishery off the mouth of the Deschutes (in the Columbia), so no major worries.
 
I want to stress again that if you would like to go on a Deschutes River steelhead trip, we need to nail down the dates and secure the boater pass as they are increasingly hard to come by. There will be fish and the only way to catch them is to get a line in the water! J
