Fishing Reports

Thankfully, there are still some fish hanging out in the Fall! We love that and we love getting out there to trick those fish into eating our flies. Sometimes it can be a bit tricky but if you are persistent, you can get into them! If you are getting fish to chase/follow your flies but are not committing, try to taper down your tippets. Fishing 6x fluorocarbon or powerflex  plus.  Powerflex plus is great because it…

WIth some seasonal closures going on over the past week, keep in mind that sections the Metolius are included in that! Remember, the Met is now closed from the Headwaters to Allingham Bridge. Fishing from below Allingham Bridge and downstream is fair game! The fishing on the Metolius has been quite good! The nymphing has been great throughout the river system. We recommend fishing subsurface until the BWOs come off in the afternoon. If you…

Over the last few weeks, the Crooked River has been dropping down into the winter flow stages. This has been great for the bug activity! Especially on a nice, warm fall day. With the right weather and conditions, the blue-winged olive hatch can be pretty great. Coming off several times throughout the day, normally in the late morning and early afternoon. The river is currently at about 90 cfs.  Even if you do not see…

The Crooked River is a special place to spend a few hours fishing in the fall! With BWOs and a few caddis still coming off, it can be especially fun throwing dry flies around for eager trout. We have been fortunate to be throwing dry flies and dry droppers for most of the day. The blue-winged olives have been coming off in the mid-morning as well as early afternoon. If you are not having luck on…

One of the best times of year for fishing at East Lake is when the kokanee start moving towards the shallows for spawn and the trout follow them! We are noticing that kokanee are not totally out of the depths or pushing into the shallows yet. This should happen anytime. This has caused the Fall fishing to be a little slower than usual. Which means that most of our fishing efforts have been focused on…

As mentioned in previous updates, the Lava Lakes are fisheries that we consider good Spring and Fall fisheries. This being said, we have been able to devote a little more time to Big Lave Lake and figure out what is going on out there. We have been fishing down and dirty, with leeches and buggers. Fishing with a type3 sinking line has been our go to. This gets the flies down quickly and deep. Our…

We are continuing to spend plenty of time on Crane this Fall as it is a great fall fishing destination. As of this week, we are seeing water temps starting to drop. In some areas, the water temp has dropped to 41°. However, in other areas of the lake, the water temps range from 45° to 51°. So needless to say, things are getting COLD! There are still a few callibaetis hanging around and hatching…

The Fall River! Such an exceptional little body of water. At least when the fishing is great and there a lot of fish in the river. It goes without saying that the fishing in the Fall River is best when fish are first put in the river. This being said, it has been awhile since fish have been added to the river so the bite gets a little bit more selective. Many of us try…

From Warm Springs to Trout Creek, the fishing has been pretty great! We expect this to continue over the next few weeks. We are seeing more and more adult October Caddis fluttering around and a few fish have been tricked into eating October Caddis dries. Aside from that, we are seeing a decent caddis hatch in the morning and PMDs/BWOs throughout the day. If you are fishing dries, we recommend size 8 or 10 orange…

We just want to get this one back on everyone’s radar as we consider this a great spring and fall fishery. As the water starts to cool down and the fish can move in the shallows, the fishing can get really good! We have not spent a ton of time up there yet but the time we have has been good and we have had decent reports from other anglers as well. Most of our…
