Fishing Reports

    Mid-way through summer and air temperatures hitting 90’s means there are going to be some grasshoppers around the water. Fishing hopper patterns or terrestrials on the fall can be rewarding. There are lots of downed tress and undercuts where those bows will hang out. Drifting a hopper close to the logs or undercuts will normally produce some action this time of year. Little black ant patterns can be effective as well. Hopper dropper…

The Crooked River has been fishing solid lately. There has been plenty of  fish in the 12 to 14 inch which has been a nice bonus. Caddis and Pmd’s have been all over the river starting mid-morning and can make for some fun fishing. Nymphing little winkers midge or tiny mayfly nymphs has been producing throughout the day. A couple good bugs have been the red lightning bug and tungsten zebra midge in sz 18….

    This Last Wednesday I got a chance to hit the lower 10 miles of the Lower Deschutes. After hearing a few reports and watching water temperatures, the best bet was to fish early morning and call it good. Water temperatures in the evening are getting too warm and will cause a lot of stress on fish. The morning temperatures are in the low to mid sixties which is manageable. The good news is…

    Fishing between Little Lava and Crane has still been producing some quality Brookies. Attractor dries and terrestrials have been fishing great near trees. Streamers and nymphing can produce some of those larger brookies that stay hunkered down in the deeper pools and down fall.     If your looking for some big browns, the Deschutes from Crane to Wickiup or Wickiup to Benham falls is the place to be. Streamers is one of…

As of this writing, the entire Lower Deschutes is open to boating and camping.  BLM is advising floaters between Warm Springs and Dant to be aware of continued firefighting efforts in the area as well as hazards created by the recent fires.  On to the fishing report….I was supposed to put in on Tuesday for a 3 day trout trip from Trout Creek to Harpham.  Obviously, the fire forced us to change our plans.  Fortunately,…

Here they Come! The Lower 20 miles on the Lower Deschutes is the place to be if you are looking for that early, hot ass steelhead. Yes the numbers are still low, but all it takes is one! Put in your time and the reward could be more than worth it. These early steelhead can be untouchable. Blistering runs and jumps will be the norm if you hook into one. Early morning’s are best right…

I had a great day on the water today with Nick and Rich. We fished dry and dropper all day and landed a bunch of fish in the 15 to 18 in range. Cali spinners in the morning and duns the rest of the day. The go to bugs were the extended body may fly dry and the beadhead birds nest as an emerger.

Wickiup hasn’t exactly been a no brainer, but it is producing some nice fish, like the fat ‘bow below.  My son Eric snookered this one a minnow bugger while walking the shore.  Nice ‘bow.  But be forewarned, fishing the same area at the same time of day in similar conditions today resulted in zippo-nada.  I guess that was just paying dues to tangle with some very nice ‘bows, browns, and even the occasional 20+ inch…
