Fishing Reports

The Crooked has been fishing great lately.  Here are some pics taken in the last few days on the Crooked.  Tight Lines y’all.

The Metolius is just one of those places where sometimes you can never predict what will happen. The other day I was fortunate

The Lower Deschutes water level is currently on the high side. If you venture out there look to fish close in near the banks. Hatches of Bwo’s, Midges, and Caddis are to be expected. Nymphing a stonefly nymph with a mayfly dropper should do the job. Stonefly’s should be moving

    Fall River is fishing fair. Numbers of fish is down than normal and finding fish is difficult. The hatchery and tubes are the best place to concentrate fishing efforts. Midges and Bwo’s are coming off mid-day. Streamers and nymphing small midges can be effective. Not quite sure what the deal is with fish being scarce. The fish tend to move around a lot and will pod up, so keep your eye out.

    The Upper Deschutes is also higher than normal. Seems to be the story everywhere. Fishing close to the banks is your best bet. Nymphing big stones and bigger dropper nymphs surely would produce. Bigger prince and pheasant tail nymphs would be a great choice under a heavy stonefly nymph. Throwing streamers would be the next best option. Those big fish should be right on the bank in these conditions. Can’t catch fish complaining…

    The Metolius River being close to the Cascades, unfortunately gets the worse of the storms. Heavy rain from last week bumped the Metolius River level to above 3,000 cfs. The Met is on the drop now and currently at 2850 cfs. Even though the water is high, fishing is still plenty doable. Streamers and nymphing would be the best option in these conditions. Keep an eye on the water levels. It shouldn’t be…

    The Lower Deschutes water level is currently on the high side. If you venture out there look to fish close in near the banks. Hatches of Bwo’s, Midges, and Caddis are to be expected. Nymphing a stonefly nymph with a mayfly dropper should do the job. Stonefly’s should be moving around more and more as time progresses towards the big hatch. Were getting so close to game time on the Lower D. March…

    The Crooked River is fishing great right now. Water levels have consistently been at 54 cfs for a couple weeks now. Midges are coming off on the regular and can make for some fun dry fly fishing. Watch closely for risers. The takes are very gentle and subtle. Bwo’s should be reappearing more and more. Nymphing midge patterns has been extremely productive, as well as the occasionally stripped bugger in the deeper pools….

   Have not heard of any recent reports on the Fall river. Using the staple winter patterns such as midges, bwo’s, tungsten midges, and streamers typically will do the job. Never be hesitant to experiment though. These fish must see a million of what I said above. Crazy streamers or cool flashy nymph patterns could be what it takes to get these moody hatchery trout going. Get out there and have fun with it.

   The Lower Deschutes is running a little higher than normal and possibly a little off color. As bad as this is for fishing, this also helps for what is to come. Water was much needed everywhere. The lower can fish decent this time of year for trout. Nymphng stonefly nymphs and mayfly droppers can produce. Bwo’s are coming off during the day which can make for some good dry fly fishing. March Browns and…
