Shifting Seasons on the Deschutes River and its Major Tributaries / VARIOUS DATES JAN, FEB, MARCH 2015

I was lucky enough to spend some rad days flyfishing on the Deschutes, Crooked, and Metolius Rivers with good friends and family during the early months of 2015. The geography, waters, and wildlife of Central Oregon's rivers never fail to amaze. After each visit I am always left with the desire to come back and discover more of this engaging country.
