Fishing Reports

We love love love when fish are eating dries! The Crooked River has been an exceptional dry fly experience over the past couple of weeks. We are seeing a decent PMD/BWO hatch with a mix of caddis in there as well. We have been fortunate enough to mainly fish dries throughout the day. If the bite gets a bit slow on top, we add a dropper to the setup before totally cashing in and switching…

The fishing up at East Lake has been pretty decent, despite the colder weather, water clarity and water temps. Seems like it takes awhile for the fish to start moving and eating, so being there super early is not necessary. The callibaetis hatch came off late in the morning and lasted for some time. A nice midge and chironomid hatch has been happening throughout the late morning and early afternoon as well.  Fishing over the hump, under…

As we get more and more into the Fall, the Cascade Lakes continue to transition. With water temps on Crane measuring between 45-51 degrees, the fish are scattered and getting ready to gorge for the winter. If you find the fish, it will be a great time! We have still been focusing our efforts on fishing dry droppers or a double nymph rig in the channels. Our go-to dry has still been the size 10…

The Fall River has still been an exciting place to fish over the past few weeks! Even though the last scheduled stocking was several weeks ago, there are still plenty of fish in the river. We think the ODFW guys may be sneaking some more fish in for us. We have had good reports of decent amounts of fish at the Tubes, the Hatchery, and below the Falls. A PMD/BWO hatch has been coming off…

It is that time of year! We are rolling into some of our first seasonal closures, with others not far behind. The Upper Deschutes closes on September 30th. The area closure includes Benham Falls upstream to Little Lave Lake. This also includes the Sheeps Bridge area of Wickiup. Fishing on the Upper D has been decent. Most folks are focusing their efforts on Sheeps Bridge so other sections of the Upper are a bit more…

It is crazy to think that just about two weeks ago the canyon was filled with smoke and fires were raging around the area. Now, the fires have settled and the fish counts are rising, the river has been a little bit more crowded on the weekends. Remember, you can check steelhead counts here. Utilizing the fish count charts will be helpful in determining where you are fishing! If you are fishing between WS-TC, the…

Well, well, well, it looks like as if winter is knocking right on our front door. It is easy to say that we are going through some transitional phases as weather and seasons change. This means that the fisheries are going through a similar change. The water temps on Crane Prairie have been all over the place, going from high temps to low temps, and back to moderate temps. This is the time we like…

There are still bucket loads of fish swimming around the Fall River! As usual, when the fish are in there, the fishing gets good. However, as we can expect, with a great amount of pressure, the fish start to get more selective with their grabs and what they are eating. This is a great opportunity to start honing in some of those skills in getting tricky fish to eat. We know the fish are there,…

The fishing on the Crooked River has been pretty great! We are seeing a nice BWO and PMD hatch coming off in the afternoons. Also, a decent Mahogany Dun hatch is coming off in the afternoon. This is is a good opportunity to go and throw some small dries to the fish. With the weather patterns we are having this week, it may knock the hatches down a bit. However, fish are still looking up…

Yesterday on the Lower Deschutes was a classic. We had periods when we got eaten every few minutes and some when we might go an hour between. But almost every fish we hooked was a good one! It’s still that time of the year when, if you’re targeting trout, you’ll want to be on 5 and even 6X tippet using pretty small bugs. Yesterday’s hot fly was either the #18 Purple Psycho Prince or same…
