Fishing Reports

Most of us know that fishing at Sheeps Bridge and on Wickiup this time of year can produce large, healthy rainbows and brown trout. With trout following the kokanee spawn, fly fishing tactics can become rather rudimentary, fishing with beads, eggs, san juan worms, etc.  This is a great time to go out and chase some big fish and have some fun. Please keep in mind when you are out there to respect other anglers, respect…

The fishing at East Lake has remained pretty decent throughout August! The smoky sky and the eclipse crowds over the past few weeks have left East Lake rather empty. It seems as the terrestrial fishing has pretty much shut off for the year. We are focusing on deep water chironomid fishing at this point. We are fishing about 15-20 feet deep depending on where we are on the lake. Fishing off the hump, in front…

The bobber fishing on Crane has begun to get a little tougher. It seems as the lake is transitioning again and there is a algae bloom happening again by Rock Creek and Quinn. It is a long, stringy, algae that tends to stick to your flies, leader, and line. This gets quite frustrating so it gives us the opportunity to go explore the lake some more. The algae by Rock Creek and Quinn pushed us…

The ODFW Stocking Schedule has been completed for Central Oregon streams. They will continue to stock some of the lakes through October but the last of the fish for the year have been put in the Fall River. Sometimes those guys at the hatchery will sneak fish in here and there but for the most part,  the fish we have now are the fish we have until stocking efforts pick up again in the spring….

Oh, my! The Lower Deschutes, the place that seems like a ghost town these days. Very few crowds, open water, and decent fishing. However, the amount of smoke down there over the past few days has been unreal. The (mid-day) caddis fishing seems to be just about finished for the year. We are still seeing a few caddis fluttering around but not enough to call home about. Would focus your caddis efforts in the evenings….

Finally! After a nice, long summer, we are finally starting to see some decent hatches come off on the Crooked River. There has been a nice caddis hatch and an exceptional PMD/PED hatch coming off in the mid-afternoon and lasting for several hours. You will see a variety of midge hatches throughout the day that gets the fish moving around. Fishing midge dries or small Adams/purple haze can be productive. If you are not fishing during…

Despite the traffic and the fires, the fishing on the Lower D (WS-TC) has remained decent on the fishing front. We are seeing really nice caddis and PMD/PED hatches through out the day. The fish are keyed into Caddis in the slower, back eddy, type of water and are eating PMDs/PEDs in the faster, rifflier, areas.  If you are throwing dries, we recommend having a variety of caddis flies such as X-caddis, X2 Caddis, outrigger…

The Fall fishing on the Metolius can be great, especially for bull trout and we are almost at that time! Even in the late summer, the bull trout fishing can pick up. When we are fishing for bull trout, our tactics are mainly fishing nice big (white) streamers on a heavy rod. We like those flies to get down fast and effectively. If you do not have any white streamers, fishing a sculpin pattern will…

The Crooked River has still been fishing decently well through out the day! The fishing really begins to turn on mid morning (10 am) and then slows down by early afternoon. However, in the lulls of “good fishing” the fish has remained consistent. The fish push to deeper pools when the sun gets high so fishing under an indicator is your best bet. There was a decent PMD hatch that was coming off in the…

The fishing on the Fall River has been excellent! There are a ton of fish in the river and the ODFW folks have been stocking it quite a bit over the past few weeks. Rumor has it that they have been plunking fish in the Fall over several days last week. They are letting the big guys escape the hatchery and hang in the river. This is a great opportunity to go find yourself a…
