Fishing Platforms on the Deschutes River

Sherars Falls along the Deschutes River in Northern Central Oregon, just a few miles before it drains into the Mighty Columbia River. Named after Joseph Sherar, who owned, and invested in, the bridge nearby during the late 1800’s. Sherars Falls has always been a popular crossing spot over the Deschutes River. It’s also been a favorite fishing spot among regional natives for a long time before that. The platforms they build along the river allow access to fishing so they may provide sustenance to their families, along with entertainment for passersby by providing demonstrations for all to see. Sherars Falls is not as nice as the infamous Celilo Falls, which is now buried under a reservoir in the Columbia River behind The Dalles Dam, but decent none-the-less. Here are some images I found a couple years back while on a visit to White River Falls. It was a sunny day, and fortunately our visit was timed decent enough to get a different play of the blaring sun shining down on the river.

Thanks for stopping by this week, I hope to keep providing these images for your enjoyment. While the number of followers appears to be growing, I’m not getting the number of visits to my blog as I’d like at this point in my blog’s history. This is causing me to believe that I’m not doing a good job here, either my images aren’t that great or, the layout is not appealing? Not sure what it is? If you have some construction feedback to provide, please do so in the comments area. I do appreciate all the likes I’m getting to my posts, but unfortunately, the number of visitors to my blog has dropped. While I do a lot of my posting for my own pleasure and if someone else finds something here they enjoy, that’s awesome. It does help keep the motivation going when I see people enjoying my blog and spending time looking at these images. I do appreciate what I’ve gotten, however, I’ll probably have to drop back the number of posts I do every week? Since it appears the interest isn’t present?

Peace
