Yellowstone / Grand Teton Road Trip

Joel La Follette - Thursday, May 24, 2018

When the rivers are closed or blown out due to melting snow and spring rains I simply pull out the camera and adventure on. Here are a few images from my latest road trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. #explore

Let's Make the Metolius Fly Fishing Only

Joel La Follette - Thursday, May 24, 2018

A few weeks ago this photograph came across my desk of 16 illegally poached Metolius River Bull Trout. While many of you may think that the Metolius is already a fly fishing only stream, conventional tackle including multiple point hooks is allowed below Bridge 99. This puts resident wild native fish in danger and makes enforcement of game laws harder for officers according to the State Trooper who took the photograph in question. It seems that poachers utilize the river below Bridge 99 to slip in and toss baited lures to catch Bull Trout and depart before they can be caught. As proven here, not all are successful at avoiding apprehension. These two face charges for their efforts. Evidently this is a fairly common occurrence that is increasing according to law enforcement in the area and one we all should want to stop. 

There is a movement afoot to clarify and simplify the regulations on the Metolius making the entire river Fly Fishing Only / Catch and Release. It should be noted that enforcement officers are in favor of this change as it would make enforcement easier. Additionally, law enforcement officers say that the fly fishing community seem to police themselves and tend to follow the posted regulations. It should also be noted that the Fall River in Central Oregon is Fly Fishing Only and is stocked with hatchery Trout, while the Metolius is managed as a wild fish river without any hatchery stocking since 1997 yet is not Fly Fishing Only throughout its full length. 

It is important to state that the Metolius is Fly Fishing Only in the area of the popular camp grounds so a change to regulations to encompass the whole river would not impact families utilizing the Metolius for fishing recreation. They are already using fly gear. It would only protect fish in the lower river below Bridge 99 from less scrupulous anglers. 

This effort to simplify the regulations and make the Metolius Fly Fishing Only is spearheaded by ODFW casting instructor and friend, Chris Foster. Chris has taken on this issue as a personal quest to protect the wild fish in the Metolius River. Public input is very important and this is where you all come it. 

Please take a minute to email ODFW Director Curt Melcher, ODFW Program Manager Mike Gauvin and the ODFW Commission and simply say "Make the entire Metolius River Fly Fishing only. Protect our wild fish." 

Click the links above and take two minutes to protect the wild fish of the Metolius River. Chris has provided a detailed proposal and additional information on the issue in a notebook which is available in the shop for viewing during business hours.

Trailer Trash Thursday Roll Cast Edition

Joel La Follette - Thursday, May 10, 2018

With Salmonfly season upon us we find ourselves with our backs to the bushes or hanging out under trees. I though maybe you needed a little refresher on the roll cast from my buddy Simon Gawesworth to help keep you from sticking flies in the brush. You're welcome.

About ROAMERICA Campervan Rentals

ROAMERICA is the lovechild of two adventurous souls who met on the Oregon Coast in February 2010. In the beginning, it was all about traveling to find surf and deep snow without the crowds. They originally explored the Pacific Northwest in a 1998 Toyota truck with a canopy. It was great vehicle for accessing all sorts of amazing places but when it turned cold and wet, it became quite uncomfortable. They had always dreamt of having a vehicle that could keep them dry throughout the Northwest winters and allow them to access snowy mountains and desolate sandy beaches. Having a heater to warm up after cold surf sounded really nice, too. An RV was painful to drive, too big and could really only fit on a highway or in a Walmart parking lot, both places they desperately wanted to avoid. So when they stumbled upon a Sportsmobile campervan and realized it was the perfect solution, the dream behind ROAMERICA was born. In 2015, they started turning their dream into a reality, bringing campervan rentals to Portland, Oregon. Taylor and Gretchen want more people to be able to access the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

The Pacific Northwest is an absolutely incredible place to explore —beaches, volcanoes, deserts, rainforest, rivers, fishing, mountain biking, dirt biking, skiing, surfing, hiking, amazing food & wine. . . and COFFEE! The list just keeps going, and ROAMERICA is here to help you experience it all.
