Fishing Reports

The Lower Deschutes has been a little on the tougher side. Caddis, pmd’s and a few lingering drakes is what to expect down on the lower. If the dry fly game is slow, nymphing nitro caddis pupas and smaller mayfly droppers are working. The weather this week has been all overcast which favors mayfly hatches. Make sure to have some green drakes with you. On another side note, Steelhead are around the corner. 🙂

Every year, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife electro shock the Crooked River to estimate the current population of wild rainbows and whitefish. This is currently going on this week from Big Bend to Cobble Rock. My advice for anglers going out this week is to concentrate fishing efforts below Cobble Rock. Fishing has been great out on the Crooked. Nymphing small mayfly nymphs and midges in sizes 18 to 22 has been the way…

This weekend proved to be the best weekend so far this season, the weather was absolutely gorgeous, the laughter and friendly banter of a bunch of friends who have worked, and played together for years could be heard from one end of a lake to another as these guys battled fish after fish after fish. All of the hatches were in full swing, damsel fly’s were everywhere, Callibaetis covered the water and the dry fly…

    The Crooked River is on the radar for prime fishing here in Central Oregon. Caddis, pmd’s and smaller nymphs are the ticket. Conditions such as water levels, weather, and bug activity is up to par and should keep the Crooked River fishing great throughout the summer. Make sure to have: Small caddis, pmd’s, geen copper john, pheasant tail, zebra midge, E/C caddis, low rider, winkers midge, and soft hackles.

From big to small, caddis is the next stage and prolific hatch on the Lower Deschutes. The salmonflies have dwindled down to a few lingering golden stones. Caddis and pmd’s will be coming off as we transition into the middle of summer. As the weather approaches warmer temperatures, caddis will become more and more active. Keep an eye out for shade as fish will feel more secure in these areas. Nymphing caddis pupa’s and other various small…

Fall River has been improving. Recently stocked, the Fall is ready to rock. Bug diversity is on the rise right now. Drakes, Pmd’s, Mahogany Duns, and Caddis are around. Make sure to have some streamers on you.

Now is the time to hit the beginning of the Green Drake hatch on the Metolius River. This hatch can be epic and extremely rewarding. The Metolius can be very challenging because of the spring creek characteristics the river offers. The Drakes typically come off stronger on cloudy overcast days. The window typically ranges between 12 and 4pm. Have a variety of Drake patterns. Other bugs to look out for are: Pmd’s, caddis, rusty spinners,…

The Upper Deschutes is so diverse in both species of fish and water type. The entire Upper Deschutes system opened last Saturday. On the Upper there are three different sections to fish. Benham Falls downstream throughout town is the closest and quickest option. Here bows and browns are prevalent and are willing to eat small dries, streamers, and mayfly nymphs. Make sure to keep an eye on water levels. The fish are typically smaller however the…

Lava Lakes are fishing great right now. Stripping various buggers and leech patterns has been effective. Intermediate or full sinking lines is the way to go for retrieving buggers at lava lakes. Callibaetis should be showing soon. Make sure to have both the nymphs and adults. Chironomids can be another effective alternative too. Patterns to have are: Ice Cream Cones, Hale Bopp Leech, Blk/Olive crystal buggers, Sloan Callibaetis Nymph, Parachute Adams, and Hackle Stackers.

The salmon flies are in full swing on the Lower Deschutes and have dwindled to very few down in the lower stretches around Maupin. Warm Springs to Trout Creek has been fishing great. Keep pounding the banks and overhanging trees with the big bugs. Keep switching it up and sometimes try something else besides the chubby. The smaller clark stone was out-fishing my chubby significantly last time out. Keep an eye out for green drakes,…
