Not a whole lot has changed as far as the fishing on the Lower Deschutes. As with many of the area waters, the warmer weather we’ve seen over the past week has resulted in slightly more active fish, but for the most part flies, techniques, and productive water will be the same as over the past weeks. Trout fishing has been outstanding and there is very little pressure on many sections of the Lower D. Small flies are becoming more productive with the onset of winter, but we are still seeing plenty of success with Stonefly patterns and lots of patterns in the #14-16 range. With the poor returns of Steelhead in the Deschutes this year, it is no surprise that time on the water is required for those who hope to bump into one of these incredible fish. The good news is that the fishing has remained consistent as we’ve moved into December, and now is as good a time as any to try to find one more fish for the year. Nymphs have been finding fish, and plenty of fish are still willing to grab a swung fly in the right situation. Remember that the Lower Deschutes closes from the dam down to the North Boundary of the Warm Springs Reservation at the end of the year. If it isn’t to chilly or wet, the incredible canyon of the Lower Deschutes can be tough to beat this time of year.

    First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a
    quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.

    I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Cheers!
