All indications are that this is the year of the Mother’s Day salmon fly hatch on the Deschutes. Fly shops are predicting that the river banks will be full of these large bugs in early May instead of late May. Lots of bugs means lots of feeding by the large redside rainbow trout the Deschutes is famous for. We will also be using this event to mentor new hosts.
We will be camping, as usual, at the Beavertail Campground 10 miles below Sherar’s Falls. The campground is halfway between Lone Pine Put-in and Mack’s Canyon Campground. On Saturday, folks can float from Lone Pine down to Beavertail or from Beavertail down to Mack’s. And vice versa on Sunday.
