I'm planning a three day trip down to the North Umpqua and was making a list of essentials to take along. I got curious to know of any good ideas you all had of food to take for a three day camp-n-fish endeavor. (The beer is a no-brainer, as long as it's Black Butte Porter :beer1: !)

Jiff Super Crunch Peanut Butter
Wasa Crisp Rye Crackers
Coffee

I could live forever on that short list.

For luxury a few bitter beers and some sharp cheese, a few good bagel crisps, garlic of course. Maybe a nice summer sausage and some smoked fish.

T-bone steaks one night, lamb chops for the next night (Costco has some great ones), pork chops / apple sauce for another night - all cooked on the barby. Mix up a batch of potato or pasta salad to eat as desired. An alternate beer would be Moose Drool! Garlic bagels chips and Swiss cheese is a good combination. Prepared Caesar salad, with all the fixins..

Have a good trip.

Trader Joe's has dried mango (unsweetened) that comes in a vaccuum packed baggy about 6 oz, I think they sell it for $2 or $2.50 a bag. I live off that stuff during a long day, it's light and compact and can give you good energy boost. I swear it helps clear out the cobwebs from a long night of mirror ponds or full sail pales.

The closest restruant(sp). I never take any food along as I never seem to find the time to cook let alone eat a hot meal.

I just got off a multi-day trip with a buddy from Atl last weekend. My wife prepared Fajitas for one of our dinners... It was SO money. She precooked the chicken in Fajita stuff, cut the onions, peppers, and shredded the cheese and put them all in seperate bags. We got to camp fired up the grill, dumped it all in a frying pan and let it go. Steamed the tortilla shells with bourbon and went to town. 5 minutes and we had gourmet :)

Also we found the precooked chicken bbq in a bucket... all you have to do is heat, slap on a bun and serve.

Don't forget about the beef jerky, apples and cheese, and fat breakfast bars.

Bourbon, Vodka, and beer

and LOTS of water ;)

Last time I went to the Deschutes and this is no lie. I made Salmon Croquettes, Green Beans and Mashed potatoes. it was really easy if you like that canned salmon, you can really dress that crap up pretty good. just use Italian Bread crumbs. for Breakfast eggs, Bacon, hash browns and Coffee by the bucket full ! (I think I gained weight on that trip) also if your flies fall into the juice of the salmon can all the better! Hee-hee :clown: oh and plenty of McTarnahan's Black Watch Porter.

Sardines and Triscuits and beer. Just make sure you don't tie on a fly until you get the sardine smell off of your fingers, or you may be fishing the dreaded "scented fly."

That sucks I missed that. She precooked a meal for your trip. What a awesome wife.


Sounds like your floating?

My quick hit list for light travel:

Dinner
Cup of Noodles or Top ramen (2 per night in the cold seasons) Or Instant Rice
3 Cans Stew with barley
couple brinks of frozen ground elk meat.

Breakfast
Instant Oatmeal- (I've I had to keep light this is what I could live ooff)
Coffee- Strong-Starbuck or Peete's

Lunch
Bagels(or loaf of bread and PB&J or PB&H)
Power bars or any other protein bars

This list is a little different when I don't worry about weight or such.

Food will always be found. Just make sure you have enough "necessities." These are: caffeine, nicotine, ibuprofen, alcohol. Add to that a good supply of TP, Tums and/or Pepto and you should be good to go. ;)

Fried chicken and potato salad for dinner and sandwich and juice for lunch and for breakfast pop tarts or some other fast breakfast. Just eat when you get hungry leaving more time to fish. Also this allows me to leave junk like the stove at home meaning less to pack and unpack. {I live at the bottom of 3 flights of stairs}
