Our Central Oregon rivers are a welcome cool off spot on these hot days of summer.
If you’re from the West Coast you know late June and July have been pretty hot so far. Most of the state has been sizzling in the high 80’s to mid 90’s with some 100’s in the likely hot spots of our fine state.
The local rivers give us everything that will feed our soul, and feed our addictions to fly fishing throughout the year. At times like this, the rivers give us a gift of a temporary cool down and a place to feel good on so many levels.
We are lucky in Central Oregon with water. We have plenty of it and it’s what anglers would call great quality. Best of all even during hot weather periods our waters remain cold and clear and healthy for our beloved fish.
It’s a good time to be here. Come soak your legs in some cold water for a day or two with us.
The Crooked, Lower Deschutes at Warm Springs, the McKenzie, North Santiam, Spring Creeks (Metolius and Fall River) are cold, clear, and clean and fishing is great.
