Fishing Reports

The fishing at East Lake has been great! The weather is nice, the smoke is there, and so are the crowds. At least over the holiday weekend, they were. There have been several nice callibaetis hatches come off through the day. The morning hatch coming off as early as 8am and last for about an hour or so. The afternoon hatch was going off at about 3 and lasting til 4 or so, with a…

The Fall River is still chocked full of fish throughout the main drop zones. The fishing is great throughout the day, especially in the mornings. There is a decent PMD hatch that has been coming off mid-morning, each day. The hatch has been getting a bit weaker but fishing dries in the morning can be beneficial. Fishing a dry dropper rig is also a great technique on the Fall. Sometimes fishing terrestrials on the Fall…

Well, as much as I miss the blue skies down in the canyon, I’ve got to say that the last couple weeks have been really, really good on the Lower D. Today’s trip, with complete newbies, produced some amazing fish in the net and even more impressive were the ones that proved too worthy an adversary. We were either broken off or shook by some truly large fish throughout the day. The flows are back…

Most of us know that fishing at Sheeps Bridge and on Wickiup this time of year can produce large, healthy rainbows and brown trout. With trout following the kokanee spawn, fly fishing tactics can become rather rudimentary, fishing with beads, eggs, san juan worms, etc.  This is a great time to go out and chase some big fish and have some fun. Please keep in mind when you are out there to respect other anglers, respect…

The fishing at East Lake has remained pretty decent throughout August! The smoky sky and the eclipse crowds over the past few weeks have left East Lake rather empty. It seems as the terrestrial fishing has pretty much shut off for the year. We are focusing on deep water chironomid fishing at this point. We are fishing about 15-20 feet deep depending on where we are on the lake. Fishing off the hump, in front…

The bobber fishing on Crane has begun to get a little tougher. It seems as the lake is transitioning again and there is a algae bloom happening again by Rock Creek and Quinn. It is a long, stringy, algae that tends to stick to your flies, leader, and line. This gets quite frustrating so it gives us the opportunity to go explore the lake some more. The algae by Rock Creek and Quinn pushed us…

The ODFW Stocking Schedule has been completed for Central Oregon streams. They will continue to stock some of the lakes through October but the last of the fish for the year have been put in the Fall River. Sometimes those guys at the hatchery will sneak fish in here and there but for the most part,  the fish we have now are the fish we have until stocking efforts pick up again in the spring….

Oh, my! The Lower Deschutes, the place that seems like a ghost town these days. Very few crowds, open water, and decent fishing. However, the amount of smoke down there over the past few days has been unreal. The (mid-day) caddis fishing seems to be just about finished for the year. We are still seeing a few caddis fluttering around but not enough to call home about. Would focus your caddis efforts in the evenings….

Finally! After a nice, long summer, we are finally starting to see some decent hatches come off on the Crooked River. There has been a nice caddis hatch and an exceptional PMD/PED hatch coming off in the mid-afternoon and lasting for several hours. You will see a variety of midge hatches throughout the day that gets the fish moving around. Fishing midge dries or small Adams/purple haze can be productive. If you are not fishing during…

Despite the traffic and the fires, the fishing on the Lower D (WS-TC) has remained decent on the fishing front. We are seeing really nice caddis and PMD/PED hatches through out the day. The fish are keyed into Caddis in the slower, back eddy, type of water and are eating PMDs/PEDs in the faster, rifflier, areas.  If you are throwing dries, we recommend having a variety of caddis flies such as X-caddis, X2 Caddis, outrigger…
