We (Sam and Rick) set out to highlight the bounty of bank/wade fly fishing opportunities within a day’s drive of the Eugene area (and get on the blog without a boat :). The task was to catch and release fish in 10 streams during a one day road trip from Eugene to Bend and back again. We drove just under 400 miles. Each of us caught trout in each stream. Sam caught the “grand slam” of rainbow, cutthroat, brown and brookie. We each caught our 10 fish on 10 different flies.
Here is our day:
Boat or no boat, you can find peaceful, pleasant fly fishing opportunity on waters big or small nearby. Enjoy!
