Deschutes River - Lower - June 12th, 2013

Shifting gears is the best way to describe the river right now.  Warm Springs area saw some great evening egg laying events on the salmon fly and golden stones and the fishing was really fun. But the hatch is quickly winding down. We did get fish on the big bugs in that section, but as we we worked our way down on this last three day, the big dry was doing. The fishing was a little tougher. There where some fish working caddis, and if you could find the pockets of working fish it was good. It just felt like there wasn't consistencey to the water type and patterns of where you where finding fish the last two days. Just shifting gears from the big bugs to summer time menu.

Feels like summertime. It is hot down there. Salmon flies and golden stones are present at the top end (Warm Springs) but really, really thin to going, going, gone on the bottom end (Maupin). Still throwing the big dries, the fish have "been there, done that" and are nobodies dumby, so take your time and bring your A game. We did much better on caddis closer to Maupin, the winds of change are in the air.  Stock the boxes with the summer time usuals, caddis in all stages, PMD, and a few PED. Have fun out there.

Same story, caddis and PMDs rampin up, still salmon fly action around. Supposed to warn up, caddis should go big, salmon fly and stones should finish up fairly soon. Start stocking the boxes with summer time bugs. Have fun!

Salmon Flies and Golden stone hatch is moving along. Crazy year, with the really warm spring, lower river levels, and water temps the bugs popped super early. The warm days had them active and the hatch progressed like wildfire. The big bugs are scarce already around Maupin. We found fish looking for them still on Sunday, but the hatch is on the downward trend.  There are a lot of caddis, PMDs, some little yellow sallies, and PEDs, and we even hit some green drakes.  Start stocking the boxes with other flies than Chubby Chernobyl. 
Now is great time to make summer plans and come float the Deschutes for three or four days. July and caddis is a fun time and steelhead will be here before you know it.

Salmon fly and golden stone hatch moving along fast! Bugs are already getting thin around Maupin. We had good fish looking up still today in that area.  Plenty of bugs around Warm Springs. It has fished well during the little cold snap and fish still looking. We stunbled into some Green Drakes and that was super fun.  Plenty of other bugs on the menu, especially during the hot days. Look for good numbers of caddis, PMDs, PEDs, and little yellow sallies. The early heat has it cranked up. Big bugs are moving along fast....

Whoa, the warm weather and water temps have the big bugs popping! Dupmed the boats at Trout Creek on Monday, and the bushes at the ramp where covered in salmon flies and golden stones. First stop was pay dirt on fish eating dries. The next 30+miles had bugs and decent numbers of fish up and looking. Lots of caddis, some PMD, PED's, a few yellow sallies, and BWO showing as well. I would say get out and get some. We have 3-4 days maybe open for the next month, so don't delay. This is the time to thing about summer and July August trout.

If we can help in any way please let us know.
