It's Been Awhile

It has been very quiet in the thread lately. Life happens and you get busy. Not much to report except I did do a fishing trip on private land to Mecca Flats on the Deschutes River in the last days of October. Great camping location but the river was blown out making the fishing not very good. Here are some pics from that trip.

On another note, some new places I'm thinking of going soon are the BLM lands on the Crooked River, campsites on the South Fork of the McKenzie. Happy Camping to all of you!

river was blown out

What does this phrase mean. I'm not a fisherman. I found this phrase used a lot when I googled it, but no definition.

Blown Out = The river is muddy and high, not suitable for good fishing.

Air Chief, an old Marine here. How about the Blitzen system this year?

Tex, there are many state parks along the beach in Oregon. I would get on the internet and see which are open, and there are usually a good number of parks open. There are also lots of RV Parks and County Parks along the way. Barview County Park at the mouth of Tillamook Bay is nice enough.

Yep, blown out rivers are usually caused by heavy rains and the slide of sediment coming off hills and mountains into the watershed. Some systems clear quickly and some are slow to recover. When rivers blow out, fish will usually just go into a "hold" mode and literally wade out the storm and wait for things to return to normal before they start activity again.

We were just over in your neck of the woods and it is amazing how many state parks are closed.

It's winter, what's amazing is how many are open. Here's a link that tells which are seasonal, and which are year round.

Fantastic Place to spend the night.

Just want to inform those passing through Port Orford via 101 that there is a great place to spend the night only a couple of blocks from the highway @Harbor Drive and 5th street. You can park there and not have to unhook and walk to several restaurants and galleries within 4 to 5 blocks. We highly recommend Redfish restaurant and gallery at Battlerock State Park. The view from the parking space is great, with views of Humbug and and the fishing port below. The lot is owned by the Port of Port Orford and asks for a donation of $20.

Great tip! I wanted to stay there but we pushed through.

Look where we are boondocked now

I have to say, and I don't wan to step on any toes... but why would anyone buy an RV, drive 1-5 hours, then park in an RV park with 200 other people? All crammed in next to each other?

This is my 5th RV in 20yrs? And I've never done anything but boondocking. Isn't that the reason they're fully self contained?

Sorry for the commentary.

Here's one of my favorite spots:


Here's the GPS point: 43.79964,-120.99149 You can just plug that into Google Maps and export whatever format you want. If this spot is taken, there's 500 other spots down the road, just take your pick.

It's in the Millican Valley OHV. This is right on the edge of the OHV area, and you won't hear anything except every once in a while. We day trip to Paulina Lake, There's some ice caves to explore nearby, and also Oregon's largest Sitka Spruce?
