Fishing Reports

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…

Despite the crowds and the daily paddle board hatch on East Lake, the fishing has been great. If you are fishing along the East shoreline, fishing with callibaetis spinners and brown caddis on top will prove to be effective. The callibaetis spinners and brown caddis are coming off in the morning with the hatch lasting a few hours.  The callibaetis hatch is strong, coming off around 11am and lasting until around 2 pm. When you see…

The proper Dog Days of Summer are finally upon us. These are long, hot, caddis-filled days on the big river. The fishing can be really tough. The fish are there and the bugs cover everything and yet get a hookup can take a lot of effort. As much as we want to be knee-deep wet wading in the riffles, often times the best chance for a fish is working the banks with great stealth, hunting…

Fish the big bomber chironomids off the drop off in the mornings. Cali’s in the mid day. Dry dropper or cast and strip with intermediate lines. If you indicator fish. Fish heavy nymphs and fish faster than you would at Crane. They want it moving.  Streamers and leeches in the evening.
