Summer Heat Means Check Your Thermometer!
Your stream thermometer. We are in the middle of our dry season and rivers are heating up just like we are. On July 26th the Deschutes hit 73F and overnight the water only dipped to 68F at Moody. Maupin is forecast to reach 108F this week. Too hot to fish! Please check the forecast before you head out and take care to protect yourselves from the heat as well. And if you missed Rick Pay’s article, Angler Tips to Improve Catch and Release, in the July 2021 Flyline, its an excellent reminder for us all!
Non-resident member, Dr. Barry Mayer sent this old photo from a trip he took with Dick and Marilyn Williamson to Hosmer Lake. Dick’s perfect opportunity to get a close up and match the hatch. You can see the deck of his boat, Das Boot, in the background. Thanks Barry for sending this memory to the Flyline!
