Fishing Reports

Hosmer Lake is fishing well currently. Using a mix of damsels, callibaetis, chironomids, and buggers is producing. Good patterns to have are: crystal bugger, hale bopp leech, soft hackle callibaetis, slimfast damsel, and ice cream cones.

East Lake has been on fire so far. Callibaetis are around and fish have been eager to eat. Wind drifting callibaetis nymphs and buggers is producing. Chironomids are working in the the 12 to 14 feet of water. Using smaller chironomids in sizes 14 to 16 have been the ticket. Don’t forget about the red lightning bug and the black ant. Fly and Field has a new chub streamer that you must have. ODFW has…

Lava Lakes have been fishing great right now. Callibaetis hatches have been coming off strong. Slowly stripped in buggers, callibaetis nymphs, and damsels using intermediate sinking lines is a great method. Keep an eye on the weather this week up behind Mt. Bachelor. There has been some snow fall already this week. Classic Bend in June or as some say Junuary. Don’t miss out on Lava during the Callibaetis hatch.

Crane Prairie is fishing tough lately. Fish are spread throughout the lake due to water temperatures. As water warms fish will start concentrating in the channels. Your best bet is to try and find the fish. Leech patterns or damsels on an intermediate can be effective this time of year. Chironomids are also another alternative which can be extremely productive. There are some Callibaetis around and make sure to have some black ant patterns. Fishing…

The Fall River has been best near the hatchery and the falls. A variety of mayflies have been coming off such as, pmd’s, bwo’s, and drakes. Nymphing small rainbow warriors, zebra midges, tiny tailwater, and san juan worms can produce. With the overcast this week, this would be a good time to be out on the Fall River.

Upper Deschutes offers anglers many options and different characteristics. Bows to browns to brookies, the upper is epic depending on the section you choose to fish. The Upper Deschutes will have caddis, black caddis, pmd’s, and a few drakes. Streamers will entice the big bad browns and aggressive brookies. Town water throughout town will keep improving as summer progresses. Look to fish the evenings in town as that is the best time.

Looking outside and seeing overcast fill the sky makes me think about one particular thing, the Green Drake. The Green Drake is the king of the mayfly and especially on the Metolius River. The Metolius River is a challenging river. Spring fed and crystal clear, the fish have a phd education on bugs. The Metolius is unbelievably healthy along with the bug diversity. The Green Drakes are a meal ticket and typically come off between noon…

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…
