Rick and Sam’s River Crawl

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!

    Great video! Glad to see I’m not the only one catching small fish out there. You read some of the various fishing blogs and see people holding pictures of huge trout and start thinking “what am I doing wrong? where’s the bigger fish?”

    As mentioned at the end of the video, we used a combination of changing gear and bleach. Also, we do not use felt soled boots to further reduce the risk of cross contamination.
