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!

September 1, 2010
When the fishing gets slow where you are, the best thing to do is get out. That's just what I did a couple weeks ago when myself and five others did a fly-in fishing trip to northern Ontario. This was pretty much your standard Canada trip with plenty of hungry, willing walleyes to grab your twister... Read more
