Crane Prairie Update 9/6

We have continued to see some awesome fishing on Crane, which is without a doubt the best lake to be fishing in the area right now. All of the fish are packed into the channels and putting flies a foot or two off of the bottom should provide consistent action. Fishing is best anytime there …

Lower Deschutes Update 9/6

The Redband fishing on the Lower has been decent, with some days fishing better than others. Ultimately, those who are properly presenting small nymphs throughout the day will find quality fish, but it can take a little patience. There is still pretty good opportunity to throw dries, with numbers of PMDs out most mornings and …

Crooked River Update 9/6

It’s a great time of year to be on the Crooked, and there is opportunity to fish dries, nymphs, or small streamers on most days. We are still seeing good numbers of PMDs around Mid-day, and Caddis are around on most afternoons. As we move into Fall and the number of cloudy days increases look …

East Lake Update 8/30/18

It’s the same story as it has been on East, which is fishing  fairly well for those fishing deeper water with long leaders and slip indicators.

Crane Prairie Update 8/30/18

Crane Prairie can’t be beat as far as fishing the Cascade Lakes goes for now. Fish are heavily concentrated in the channels, and with the correct presentation there has been consistent action throughout the day.

There has been a good PMD hatch coming off mid-day, typically starting around 11-12 and lasting for a few hours. Fish have been looking up and Caddis activity through the evenings …

Crane Prairie Update 8/24/18

The fishing on Crane has been improving every week, and our guides are having some great days and bringing good numbers of quality fish to the net.

Cascade Lakes' Trout

East Lake Update 8/24/18

We’re seeing more of the same up on East Lake, with good fishing to be had for those who are willing to adjust tactics and target fish in deeper water with subsurface flies. The most productive way to get into fish has been fishing deep below an indicator with Callibaetis nymphs and Chironomids. It is …
