In 1994 my close friend Bill Zippel and I embarked on an epic journey from the Midwest to the Pacific Northwest. We spent the summer chasing trout and steelhead on the Deschutes… I say, “chasing” because honestly we were pretty green behind the ears back then.

Its time to step up and help the Deschutes

As you may know, the Deschutes River has seen some major changes in the water regime since the Pelton Round Butte Tower Project went live in 2009. The first obvious variation we saw was higher water temperatures in the spring and summer. Along with temperatures that reached 74 degrees at one point last year, the water clarity has been more turbid. Additionally, insect hatches have been altered or disappeared. Most alarming, we've seen massive algae growth that has never been seen before on the Deschutes.

It's really cold in Michigan right now...

As you may have seen on the news it's been very cold in Manistee County, MI ...so cold, in fact, that the County Government has borrowed a Norwegian Icebreaker to clear the Manistee River for fishing and migrating waterfowl. The Icebreaker is starting near Highway 55 and working its way upriver.

...Impressive

One on One with Joan Wulff

Winston Fly Rods
The one and only...

Joan Wulff is considered by many to be the first lady of fly fishing, which makes sense considering everything she has accomplished throughout her career. Whether it's winning casting competitions, designing fly rods for the RL Winston Rod Company or helping a new angler become a more proficient caster, Joan does it better than most. In short, she's one bad-ass lady with a fly rod!
