Fishing Reports

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…

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…
