It is time to really get out their and hit the water things are starting to look up. The weather is starting to cooperate and streams are slowly getting into shape. More fun to come.
Our April speaker was John Smeraglio, owner of the Deschutes Canyon Fly Shop, who gave us great information on spring Trout fishing on the Deschutes. Things are a little different this year with water levels being high and the temperature cooler, but fish can still be caught. The Salmon Fly hatch is just around the corner, but may be later than the last couple of years.
Our scheduled speaker for May had a last minute opportunity to fish in Baha, Mexico. No sane person would turn this down so Dave Kilhefner will be filling in to share some ideas, techniques and insights to fish our local waters and beyond.
The last fish-a-long was at them Oregon Fishing club’s Rainier Lakes and from the report it looked as if all had a good time. Some nice fish were held up for the camera.
The next fish-a-long will be on 5/20/17 at the Rocky Ridge Lakes. This is usually a great outing with everyone catching and releasing some gorgeous Trout. Make sure you attend this event as it can be great fun. More information is on the blog.
Coming up very quickly is the Sandy River Spey Clave at Oxbow park. It is put on by The Fly Fishing Shop ,Welches Oregon, and gathers a great list of presenters to assist in improving your Spey fishing. In addition representatives from equipment manufacturers are present with the latest in gear. It is on Saturday 5/12-13/17 so make a point to attend. More information available at flyfishusa.com
