Fishing Reports

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…

Crane Prairie- The water temps on Crane are definitely starting to rise. Fishing early in the morning and late in the afternoon can be effective in the shallows. If not, fishing the channels during the heat of the day will be your best into getting into some fish. Make sure you check the weather report before heading out! Getting stuck out on Crane during lightning and thunder can happen quickly, given the size and openness…

When the fish are in, the fishing is on! We have been fortunate enough to have a decent amount of quality fish in the Fall River over the last few weeks. The PMD hatch has been decent as well, coming off around 11 am and lasting for an hour or so. The fish are eating dry flies at this time! Fishing purple haze (sz 16/20), parachute adams (sz16-20), and PMD emergers (sz 16-20) can be effective. If you…

August is here! Which means the fishing on the Crooked River is going to improve. August is arguably one of the best times out on the Crooked. The fishing has been turning on and staying on for a few hours! This has provided for some fun days out on the Crooked. We still have not seen a major hatch take place, however, we are seeing some PMDs and caddis coming off through out the day….

The fishing on the Lower Deschutes continues to be rather challenging. However, if you are persistent, you will have some success throughout the day. The nymphing has been productive as well. Fish have been hanging in the deep, slower moving water. Focus your nymphing there. The fish are hanging there because the water is colder, deeper, and takes less effort to hang out there. However, if a nymph comes in front of their face, they…

It is always a beautiful sight when we see fish back in the Fall River! The hatchery guys have been consistently putting fish into the river. The only spot we have not had great success for most of the summer is near the gauge station. However, we are being told by ODFW hatchery that fish are being put there whenever they are stocking. The Fall River can get quite busy, just remember that there are…

The fishing on the Crooked River has been a blast! We are having some great days out on the Crooked. Whether we are nymphing through the day or blind casting dries, we have been picking up a decent amount of fish. If you have the summertime blues and are sick of nymphing, blind casting small (sz 18-20) purple haze or parachute adams has been effective. There has been no real hatch yet fish are still…

We are happy to say that the algae bloom is gone! Seems like it was quick this year, thank goodness! The surface water temperatures are in the upper 70s. Our best fishing has been in the Rock Creek and Quinn Channels. We have been fishing chironomids (red/black, sz 16-20) under the strike indicator, about a foot off the bottom of the channel. The fishing in the channels is consistent in the morning but can taper off…
