I went fishing on the upper Deschutes river above Crane Prairie Lake and Little Lava Lake. I started fishing at Highway 40 crossing and worked my way up along Highway 46. I caught and released 4 brook trout (between 5-11 inches) by working the edge of the main current in the slower moving sections. This river is small set in meadows with fallen ponderosa trees changing the water flow patterns and provding hiding spots for the fish. This wilderness is largely unspoiled and never seems to get crowded even in the summer.
