Just finished up my last day of winter steelheading for another season. Decide to take the week off from guiding and ODFW to hang with the kids over spring break and do a little fishing myself. Starting next week we are switching gears and heading for the Owyhee for some dry fly brown trout action. The dry fly fishing has already started on the Owyhee. Off and on for the past couple of weeks there has been some good Blue Wing Olive hatches. The BWO's have been showing up most days around 1 o'clock in the afternoon and on overcast days the hatches have been at their best.
Our biggest, baddest and most popular hatch on the Deschutes will be starting up in about six weeks. It's the almighty Salmon Fly hatch. The bugs are giant and the fish are hungry, so don't miss it out on this amazing time on the Deschutes.
If anyone is interested, I have one last two or three day window open for the Salmon Fly hatch. The available days are the last three days of May, which is the tail end of Memorial weekend (Sunday-Tuesday). This should be a good if not great time for the hatch this season due to the bigger winter we are having. It will also be a good time to dodge a lot of the people fishing during the holiday weekend since we can takeout on a Tuesday. If you have any questions or If you are interested let me know ASAP, It's first come first serve.
