Oregon Fishing

Traveling for work can have positive side effects. My companions and I completed our tour of facilities in Washington, Oregon & Idaho early and had time to wet a line this afternoon.

The local fly shop in Boise, ID, Anglers, is an Orvis shop. John took great care of us and outfitted us with gear, flies, directions and tips on how to fish the Owyhee River in Eastern Oregon about an hour and a half northwest of Boise.



The river was low, the Browns were staging prior to spawning and the weather was beautiful. My co-workers were successful in landing some rainbows and I hooked up on four big browns but did not get one of them to the hand. I believe this is called LDC&R.

And my rule is - "no picture and you can't count it"

Mark was the king today with this nice Rainbow.

It was his first time flyfishing...I predict it won't be his last!

Glad you were able to take a fishing break. These pictures are great! I imagine it was even more beautiful in person. I especially love the last picture with the cloulds reflected in the water.

I don't think LDC&R counts...I can do that from the boat in front of the TV. Pic's look great I may try to get our this weekend my self. No boat work untill the port is deaccessed Monday but we should plan for an evening somewhere next week.

Hi. Great page you have here. Has anyone seen this site yet? - fly tying. I was amazed by the pics in the pdf they're giving away, so I'm looking for someone who knows if this guy is on the level, before I make any judgements.
