Baker County,

If you are fishing Farwell Bend and you want to check out the Powder River arm of Brownlee Reservoir at Richland you are in for a long trip. It's a half hour run (and about 20 gallons of gas) in a good bass boat by water or you can drive back to Baker City and then to Richland, a trip of about 90 miles. My brother talked me into the drive once and although I have never regretted it I would never do it again. We caught good fish and saw two huge golden eagles tumbling in the air currents above the Powder river, a sight I will never forget.
