Deschutes=Trout Creek=Steelhead



I just started my 14th season working on the Trout Creek project for Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. We are trying to create better habitat which improves the stealheads' chances of survival and provides more areas for them to spawn. Trout Creek is the main spawn tributary of the Deschutes for summer run steelhead.


Roughly 20 percent of all the steelhead that swim up the Deschutes go up Trout Creek to spawn. Some steelhead only make it up the creek a couple hundred yards where others travel over 40 mile up it to spawn. It’s nothing short of incredible what these fish go through.



We are exactly two months away until the entire 100 miles of the Lower Deschutes opens up. April 22nd is our lucky day this year.

The Bites On


All this amazing weather we've been having, hasn't just got us excited, it has also got the fish super excited. These hot February days are warming up the water temps quickly which has made the bug hatches come off like crazy for the past week. All these bugs have made for some amazing midday dry fly action. As long as the warm weather continues to be awesome, so should the fishing.



If you haven't gotten signed up with us for the Skwalla hatch this March/ April, you're going to have to wait until next season. Our calendar is all booked up for those two months. If you can't wait until 2019 to fish the Owyhee, another great option is to join us over there in August and/or September for some hopper fishing.
