This fish was a perfect end to a great season. We were able to hook into this steelhead on our last guided day of the season. There are still fish to be caught, but you must get your flies down to them. Water temps are cold and the fish aren’t willing to chase flies very far. Sink tips or even nymphs are your best bet late in the season.
Don’t forget that a good chunk of the Lower Deschutes River will be shutting down for both trout and steelhead at the end of the Month. So if you haven’t got your fix yet, you had better do it soon. See ya all next season.
