This is a party not to be missed!  Lots of awesome trips, dinners, lodging, and gear.

This year will be the sixth consecutive year River Runner Outfitters will be partnering with Lange Winery, Phillipe Boulot, and Green Valley Farms to provide a unique fly fishing, wine, food, and lodging package on the Deschutes River during the salmonfly hatch (June 2, 2013).  The trip is three days and two nights.  Titled "Drift in to Green Valley" at the auction.

In addition to the Green Valley trip, River Runner will be donating a three day, two night Mack's to the mouth steelhead float trip for four anglers, retail value of $5400.  Dates for the trip are July 24, 25, 26.  Titled "Deschutes Time and the Living's Easy".

If you've read this far I'll mention we hooked two beuatiful wild steelhead on the coast yesterday.  One in the first run of the day, a leaping 20 inch buck in spawning colors.  The second was a large hot fish that came unbuttoned after about 15 seconds.  I love to see good genetic diversity rather than cookie cutter fish.
