May 27, 2017- If you haven't been on the Deschutes in the last week or so, NOW is the time. Although the stoneflies showed up on time in early May, it took a while for the weather to warm up and get them flying. Last week brought some hot temps to the canyon and put the big bugs into flight mode, which finally stirred up some serious action with the fish. We are finally retiring the bobber rods for a while and even snipping the little dropper flies off of the big dry flies. Down and dirty, bow-and-arrow jungle fishing is the name of the game and we couldn't be more excited. This is when the biggest resident trout of our season show up to play. Give us a call and get down here!

Smallies in WI
June 8, 2010
We like to call them our "summer steelhead." Ounce for ounce, they are some tough fighting fish and when you have a 20-incher on, you know you've got something. My fishing buddy (TD) and I were lucky to get into a few of these beauties a couple weeks ago. Now, to catch one 20" is one... Read more
Bluegill camp Oh-Ten
June 8, 2010
As midwest correspondent for DRO, I feel it is my responsibility to report on the goings ons in this part of the country (northern WI). While people in OR are out on the mighty Deschutes fishing the salmon fly hatch, we're getting geared up for the bluegill spawn. It's a great time of the year... Read more
