March on the Fall River

One of the few bright spots over the month or so is that the Fall River continues to offer some really fun fishing. On the right day. With the right flies. Fished to right way… We’ve had days up there recently with snow blowing sideways and Blue-Winged Olives hatching thick, trout eating all over the …

Fall River- late August

The ODFW Stocking Schedule has been completed for Central Oregon streams. They will continue to stock some of the lakes through October but the last of the fish for the year have been put in the Fall River. Sometimes those guys at the hatchery will sneak fish in here and there but for the most …

Fall River Winter Beauty

Our favorite little spring creek continues to impress this winter. While access to the “Tubes” remains a bit dodgy, the Hatchery water is open and full of fish. From “Ed’s Hole” to the flat water around the bend fish can be found eating and active most days from 10:30 till 3 working on midges and …

Lower Deschutes Haze

Metolius River Update

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 …

Crooked River Update

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 fishing has remained consistent. The fish push to deeper pools when the sun gets high so …
