In the past week there has been a good slug of fresh shiny steelhead that has shot up on the Deschutes. Hopefully this is a good sign of whats to come. According to the weatherman, temperatures are going to cool down starting next week and there’s even a slight chance of rain. This should drop water temps on the Deschutes and drag more steelhead into the river.
If trout is more your game there's still time. There is still plenty of them around. With a few exceptions, the trout fishing this season has been some of the most consistent fishing we've had in a few years. Our caddis and mayfly hatches will continue right on through the middle of October.
