Gobble Gobble

Swinging floating lines and fishing small flies has come to an end for another season on the Deschutes. With short days and long nights the water temps have dropped like a rock in the last couple weeks. Now that water temps are below 50 degrees the steelhead have become more lethargic, which means you need to get down more into their realm. With that being said, you can still catch plenty of fish swinging sink tips or nymphing. 

If the steelhead fishings is slow string up your favorite 5wt. and cast for some trout. The trout fishing has been really good of late! The great thing about fishing for them this time of year is that you will probably be the only doing it, which means you will get pretty much every spot to yourself. There is just over a month left in the season of the 2017 season. 
See you on the river

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Steelhead Still Going Strong

Dry fly fishing isn't just for trout. When the water conditions are right and fish are grabby you can fish dry flies aka skaters for steelhead. With one exception of a week ago we have had a lot of both this season. And to make things better we've had the river pretty much to ourselves this fall. This skater fish was taken at camp just three days ago.

The Deschutes steelhead season is winding down so if you have hit the river yet better do it soon.
