Deschutes River June 2016

A great way to end a great day!

The summer’s always get busy for me. So I  relish a day where Dave and I can enjoy the water together. Yes we call it our equivalent of a date night. This Friday we had our date on the Deschutes and the Deschutes showed us her better side. Or should I say the Deschutes Rainbows showed us some of her better red sides. Always a great Day on the Deschutes River – but extra nice when we can bring a good number of rainbows to the net.  The flies that worked the classic black rubber legs, sparkle caddis pupas,  and a BWO nymph! Enjoy the photos.

Took time to collect some bugs – is this an albino stonefly?
