Rode Trip: Bikepacking and Flyfishing on the Deschutes River Trail 

An excellent piece about fly fishing and camping via pedal power along Oregon's Deschutes River Trail.

People write and talk about the salmon fly hatch on the Deschutes River with near religious awe. It’s a time when strange, two inch, orange insects emerge and line the grasses on the banks of the river in biblical proportions, causing large and usually wary trout to throw caution to the wind and feed on the surface with the desperation of the last call at Old Country Buffet.

Or that’s what they say, at least.

Take a Hike Creek

Deep in the Oregon backcountry there is a place... A place where crystal clean springs rupture from the Earth and where the purest rainbow trout have evolved apart from the rest of the Columbia Basin. A land where waterfalls plunge from pool to pool and feisty fish attack streamers with little regard for their own safety. This is Take a Hike Creek.

S. 1448: A bill to designate the Frank Moore Wild Steelhead Sanctuary in the State of Oregon

Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley introduced a bill to designate more than 100,000 acres of public lands in Oregon as the “Frank Moore Wild Steelhead Sanctuary.”

The Oregon senators named their legislation in honor of Frank Moore because of his outstanding accomplishments starting in World War II and then continuing for nearly two decades as the proprietor of the Steamboat Inn along the North Umpqua River. Throughout his life, Moore has shared his passion for fishing, the river, and the outdoors with visitors from all over the world.
