Today I had the pleasure of guiding Jeff C. and his 9 year old son Grady on the Cherokee Trophy section. Jeff owns and operates the High Desert Drifters Guides and Outfitters on the Deschutes in OR. Check them out they will definitely put you on the fish. www.deschutesflyfishing.com
The day started out with a couple of decent rainbows on the upper section. At mid-morning we decided to drive down to the confluence hole where Luftee and Raven Fork meet. Fish were stacked in there by the dozens. Grady quickly set his sights on a huge Palomino that was pushing 22-24 inches. Jeff lan3ded several fish including a 16-17 inch bow. Fish were taken on large Yellow PMX and Madam X patterns as well as Blue Lightning Bugs and UV Flashback Prince Nymphs. The last fish of the day was the Palomino pictured below that Grady brought to the net. The fish was already injured so we had to get him back in the water pretty quick. Overall a fantastic day on the water with some great company. The fish were just a bonus!
