Dog days of summer
We are kind of between season now as far as fishing goes. The Deschutes summer steelhead are just beginning to show and the trout fishing is tapering off a bit. I find plenty of diversion, however, in pursuing coastal cutthroat trout.
Very few people bother with them as they are catch and release only and most coastal residents have a harvest mentality so that means limited or almost non-existent pressure on these wonderful little trout.
Very peaceful and reflective time for me when I am out on the river casting to these fish. They aren't huge but are plenty aggressive and fight great!
