Game Changer


Deschutes River
The amazingly nice weather we've been having has made for some nice days on the water, but the fishing of late has definitely been up and down due to the lack of bugs. But now the game is changing. The salmon flies are finally making their annual guest appearance which should get the trout ready to chow everything in sight. So if you like enjoy fishing big dries to eager fish this is your time. The salmon fly hatch usually only stick around for two or three weeks, so there is no time to wait.

Bugggggs

Deschutes 
The months of May and June are truly one of the best times for trout fishing; especially dry fly fishing. Bigger small, Salmonfllies, Mayflies, Caddis, and Green Drakes all come out to party for the next upcoming months. Weather can play a big role in dictating hatches. Warm overcast days are prime conditions for mayflies while hot sunny conditions improve caddis number. The Salmonfly hatch will happen any week now. There are already some reports of some big bugs making an appearance in the lower reaches of the Lower Deschutes downstream of Maupin. The forecast looks to be warmer for the next couple of weeks. With that said, it will only be a matter of time until the grassy banks are full of salmon flies. The salmon fly hatch typically will last a couple weeks. During the big hatch however, be prepared to have caddis and mayflies. As most people know, the Lower Deschutes water temperatures are warmer this day in age causing timing to be earlier than normal.
