Caddis are a coming

Deschutes River

If you haven't had a chance to get out and fish the salmon fly hatch yet, you best get out their now or you will have to wait till next season. The Salmon Fly hatch is on it's last leg in some parts of the river. The bugs are all but gone  in the Maupin area, but the fish are still eating the flies plenty good. In the Warm Springs area there are as many bugs left up their as anywhere and now that Memorial weekend has come and gone the crowds are starting to dwindle. The good news is that with the days starting to warm up the caddis are starting to show up in force and a number of the fish are already starting to key in on them.

Don't forget if you are a steelhead junkie like me, we are just over two months away from that firing up. The steel that show up in August are the crazy hot ones that will run you up one side of the river and down the other and give you a real butt kicking in process.

I'm off to the river again tomorrow, see ya on the river

Deschutes River

Here it is short and sweet. The Salmon flies are here and they are here in force. The hatch is from Maupin all the way up to Warm Springs. The lower you are on the river or closer to Maupin the better the fishing seems to be right now. But there are plenty of fish in the Warm Springs area that are very happy to see the Salmon fly. Within the next week or so the Whole stretch from Warm Springs to Maupin should  be fishing as good as it's gonna get. 


Got to run heading for the river again.

Tight Lines.

Back to the Deschutes


We are now giving the Owyhee River and it's Brown Trout a break for a couple month. We will be making our way back over their for August and September when it's Trico's and Terrestrial time.  This is what a Owyhee Trico Hatch looks like some August and September mornings.


We are now focusing on the Deschutes and it's well known Rainbow Trout aka Redsides.  River. It's only been open for 10 days now and already fishing has been very good. The bulk of what we've been doing is nymphing but on some of the days especially the cloudy ones we've had some good March Brown hatches that have been getting the Rainbows very excited. Fishing should continue to get better and better the more we get into May and then when the Stone Fly migration starts all heck will cut loose.


Even though the Salmon Fly hatch is still two or more weeks away there has already been a few siting of them cruising around. 

See ya on the river
