Bad News, Good News

Deschutes 
It's been another great salmon fly hatch but the bad news is that we are now on the last leg of it. So if you want to fish the big bugs you had better get here in the next week. Otherwise you will have to wait till the 2017 season.


The good news is with this crazy hot weather that's hitting us right now the caddis hatch is already cranking up. The even better news is that with the salmon fly hatch winding down the amount of people fishing the Deschutes is dwindling every day. So if you like stalking rainbow trout, sipping dries in back eddies or along soft moving banks your time is now.

Owyhee 
If you wanted to fish the Salmon Fly Hatch on the Deschutes but wasn't able to make it, don't worry. Once August and September hit big dry fly season for the browns starts on the Owyhee.

Salmon Flies

Deschutes River
Trout
The Salmon fly hatch is starting to ramp up. The bugs are scattered throughout the entire lower Deschutes River. But we are still several days before primetime kicks in. Do to the better than average winter we just had, it should help keep our salmon flies around longer and the fishing should be good through a chunk of June this year.


Steelhead
It's never to early to start thinking about steelhead. We are under three months away from the start of another steelhead season. The steelhead usually start showing up in good numbers on the Deschutes starting around the first part of August. Once they show up, the steelhead fishing can fish good right on through November.




Owyhee River
Even though the big dries are done on the Owyhee right now doesn't mean there done for the year. Come August through most of September is when we get to fish big hoppers and beetles. So if you like fishing big dries on a small river for brown trout, give us a shout. We have limited openings that time year.

We offer one day trips and over night camp trips.

Guess Who's Here

Deschutes River

Salmon Flies and Golden Stones
That’s right, it’s that time of year again. The Stone Fly hatch is already ramping up. The warm weather we’ve been having, has got the big bugs excited and a lot of them are on the move and heading for dry land. 



















                                 We've already seen a few bugs up as far as the Trout Creek area and there are good numbers showing up around Maupin. Some fish are already locked in and gobbling them. But the bulk of the trout aren't fully keyed in on the Salmon Flies yet. It's just a matter of time.

It's still a few weeks before things really go bonkers.
