Lake Billy Chinook is ramping up in the Metolius Arm for Bull Trout, but I got several reports this week that were slow there. I think at this time and maybe for another week to 10 days or so, go to the Deschutes Arm instead.

I was so impressed with the safe boaters that came to the shop and discussed how to access some of the areas of that big reservoir safely before they just went and tried it. Salute to safe boaters!
