Just got in to Eagle Crest and took a look at the Deschutes here. Was NOT the same as my expectations, which is a GOOD thing as far as I'm concerned! What I was expecting was bigger water with little or no wadeable water from shore. That's all I'd ever seen in pictures. Must have all been shot on the lower river. What I've seen here so far is skinny water that appears to be very wadeable. Stopped at Cline Falls State Park to look around and saw what looked like some good sized fish rising. I am SO stoked for my first chance to fish it tomorrow morning! Brewpubs aren't bad either! One in Sisters and one in Redmond, so far. Also planning on at least one day on the Crooked and maybe some time on the McKenzie on our way to Seaside next week. I'll follow up on this post.
