Those are some of the best phone camera photo's I've seen. Usually they just aren't very clear. That snow up behind Sweet Home? Nice lookin' places! Fishing any good in the resivour this time of year? Maybe closed. I fished it just a couple times and never caught a thing. When I was a kid we'd fish the river where the res is now and did really well, and, it was a beautiful river. Still is if you go up toward Mountain House.
Moutain house has been sold 3x's in last 5 years, currently it seems a family living in there now. Have a ten foot, yes ten foot, chain link fence around entire poperty, even on the hill side...(shrugs) When I have been in area have waved to folks on the porch, no response. As far as fishing, been on foster twice, caught 3 rainbows. Been up to Greenpeter once, only had one on line, went under canoe and broke line :( No other nibbles. I need more time off
The John Day near Clarno, is that canoeable? I know folks run dirft boats on there all time, was curious how a canoe would do?
Cameria phone is just a Samsung phone from Verizon. Nothing to fancy, fancy things confuse my simple mind...lol
Yea you can canoe the John Day, I've seen a numer of people go down. Also saw one broke canoe that came out of Clarno Rapids. I was thinking the place to put in might be Burnt Ranch, above cherry Creek and canoe to Clarno. Probably do it in two or three days easy, probably two.
Let me start off by saying that I am a scaredy cat.
For someone that spent 3 years in 82nd Airborne jumping out of all manner of military aircraft, my friends find this ludicrous - but... it is what it is!
Climbing stand? Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it.
Ladder stands? I am better in these - but still cautious.
Chain on stands? Used to love them, now they terrify me.
I was once ridiculed for putting chain on stands waaaay too high - some of my friends...
