Fishing Reports

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…

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…
