Good People - Good Water - Good Fish

Oregon is part of the 2016 Banff trip.  British Columbia, Orgeon, Washington were actually an afterthought.  After staying in Alberta, Canada, I realized I could do British Columbia, Oregon, and Washington before going home.  It would mean a non-stop trip to Chicago via 33 hours.   Leaving at midnight, I would cross the continental divide and arrive at the border of British Columbia and Washington state.  I would try to fish both in the early morning. 

Oregon was just like British Columbian and Washington; my first fish came on my first three casts.  These are all remote areas, so fishing pressure is light.  I drove the towns of Enterprise and Joesph in the search for a latte.    I found a movie rental/coffee shop.  So, cool!  Oregon is one of my top 10 places I have ever been.  The towns were interesting, the campsites were perfect, space to spread out and super tall trees, and a great river.  The Imnaha river, even though it is so far east, supports salmon from the Pacific Ocean.  Brooke was so thrilled after catching about 14 trout in 30 minutes she peeled back a forth around the campsite in joy.

Oregon Done!
