Fishing Reports

The Grindstone Ranch is, simply put, an epic place. Epic in its remoteness, its beauty, its fish, its memories. Our 2013 season up there was everything we had hoped for, and then some! We can’t wait to host you and yours there in 2014. Come see for yourself.

Our beloved Crane Prairie is closed till April 26. It was an epic season up there for the big ‘bows and Brookies. They will be there waiting as soon as the lake is open and ready. We look forward to having you out there for a memorable day in 2014!

As of mid-week last week the Lower D had heated up. One of our guides had a five species day including two Steelhead landed (several others “got away”), four Bull Trout (up to 6-plus pounds!), many sturdy Redbands, and the obligatory Whitefish and Butterbellies. It is a egg scene down there now. The spey casters aren’t doing nearly as well as indicator nymphing. Anything with an egg: sucking leeches, hothead Stones, egg patterns. They all…

It’s that time of the year again! The Blue Wings are out in force on the Fall. No need to “Dawn Patrol”, just get there around 11 and have a Sparkle Dun #20 ready. The flat water above the “Tubes” is a favorite. All the left hand bends have fish that will readily rise to a good downstream presentation. Stop by the shop to grab your flies and we’ll be happy to talk tactics. This…

The Crooked River below Bowman Dam has been excellent. Mid-day hatches of both Blue Winged Olive and Pale Morning Duns have been consistent. The White Fish spawn is starting. The big bows have gotten used to the winter flows and are active. Preferred flies have been everything from Tailwater Tiny and WD50 for nymphing to ParaWulff in both BWO and PMD in sizes 18 and 20 for dries. Small egg patterns will be effective if…

With recent rains, the Deschutes has been rising steadily all week…getting up to winter-like flows.   Don’t let that deter you, as the clarity is still very good.  That said, the catching is still tough down there.  I’ve been averaging a fish or two a day for my boat lately.  Not bad, but not stellar either.  There are definitely fewer people out there now than there was a few weeks ago.  Not a bad time to…

Lava Lake will close Oct. 31st. Lava can fish good late in the season. If you make it up there before it closes, stripping buggers would be your best bet.

   The Deschutes through town is extremely low. Yes it is that time of year where irrigation is shut off and winter flows are taken place. This means the fish will hunker down in some of the deeper pools or anywhere they can feel secured. The advantage for the angler is fishing water that can not be fished during high water. Streamers or nymphs would be the best choice. Benham falls upstream to Wickiup closes…

Hosmer would be a good choice late in the season before snow takes over the Cascade Lakes Hwy. Hosmer can fish good late. Stripping buggers and streamers can make for some awesome action. Get up there before it is too late.

East Lake closes Oct 31st and this would be a good time to rip some big streamers for browns. The browns should be cruising the shoreline looking for chub or small bows. I have seen chub chowed down in the shallows by a big brown. It has been a great season at East!
