Fishing Reports

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…

East has been a bit tough for the bigger fish. Cali hatch has been great in the mid day.  Fish not really on them on the bright blue days. If we get some cloud cover that will all change. Indicator fishing off the hump or on the east shore in 13 ft with small 16 &18 midges has been good. Lots of this year stocked bows and Kokanee stacked in the shallows make for light…

Damsels nymphs are tapering off. Chronimids and small midge any time…

Fishing has been  a little tough the past few days. We have been getting lots of small fish with subtle bites while fishing under the indicator.We fished in close to the boat so we would not miss strikes. Leaving the indicator away from you can lead to missed fish. Callibaetis dries come off around 11-2. Good hatches but the fish were not into them. We have caught a couple on dark caddis. 5x and 6x tippet….

The Lower Deschutes (warm springs to trout creek) has been on FIRE! The caddis is out in swarms and are coming off nearly ALL day. Watch the banks for sipping fish. Be sure to hit these fish on the head with your fly, the typically do not move more than a few inches to sip that caddis down. The fish have been selective in size. Watch the fish see what the eat off the water….

There are PLENTY of fish in the Fall! The guys at the hatchery have indicated that they are stocking the river weekly at this point. Not hundreds at a time, but, a decent amount of fish in each of the 3 common drop locations. It is nice to see fish back in the river given what has been going on over the past year or so. With fish in the river again, the crowds have…

We have seen an afternoon hatch coming off around 3-4pm. Be sure to have size 16-18 PMDs. You can also fish a small purple haze or parachute Adams to imitate these mayflies. If you are fishing subsurface, fish 6x…
