This summer, Lord willing I am wanting to take a few days with my wife and go fishing. I am not a hard corps fisherman.. I do love to fly fish when I am able and for me "anything caught" is a day remembered. With that said, I am asking for anyone's advice on where to go.. My personal desire would be to go to the Deschutes (have never been there) and stay In a motel or cabin somewhere where we can be close to fishable water.. a place where we can drive there and walk to rivers edge, wade in if needed and fish, if that scenario is possible ?. I am interested in their red side rainbows ? are there best times to fish the Deschutes during summer months? I am hopeful that some of you on the list have yourself done something similar on the Deschutes river or elsewhere not so far away and can give me some advice so I can start planning and saving up now for a much needed few days with my wife just relaxing and maybe catch a fish or two. I am open to any suggestions, fishing on rivers or lakes, staying in a rental cabin or motel. Unfortunately my budget would not allow for a fancy fishing lodge or guided fish trip, We are looking at just going out together on our own. One place that was suggested to me was a place called 3 lakes lodge in Kettle Falls WA. anyone ever gone there , stayed there , how was the fishing ? I see they no longer allow private gear, boats etc to be used. Not even your own waders,,, due to zebra mussels ,, so I am curious as to how you fish and enjoy it without wading or using a float tube, boat etc. Maybe standing along lake edge? The price is reasonable if there is fish to be caught. Thank you for any suggestions, Ron in" raining and cold" Raymond, WA.
