Labor Day Weekend River Crawl with Dad / SEP 1 - 4 2012

The Old Man and I decided to hit up some of Oregon's more remote and more challenging waters. Wandering through the Oregon Outback and Cascade Mountains, we tried our luck on the Metolius, Chewaucan, Sycan, and Umpqua Rivers. We caught a fair number of fish and saw some beautiful country on this late summer road-trip.

Hooked into a 15 plus incher after just 10 minutes of fishing here. I was able to get her within 2 feet of a landing when my leader snapped. I was bummed, but what a beautiful river. Must return here.


beavers!










Down from the bridge, the Lower Sycan meanders a short ways into Sycan Marsh.
