Well it looks like bonus round on the salmon flies and stones had dried up. Lasted longer than most thought. On the plus side, fish are keying in on caddis and dry and nymphing has been good. Fishing should do nothing but get better as the weather heats up and more fish key in and more caddis pop. Summer time Deschutes fishing is getting ramped up.

Warm Springs and upper section still have adult salmon flies and golden stones. Fished well the other day. Caddis, and PMDs are building and fish are keying in as well. We are transitioning from salmon fly blitz to summer time patterns. Hot stable weather will get the caddis rolling. So far it has been fishing well and should continue.

Salmon fly and golden stones are on downward spiral, BUT as of yesterday still getting them eat even down low. Bulk of action is up high ( Warm Springs). Late in the hatch these fish have been there done that. Pull out your stealth salmon fly manuers, aka get deep in the nooks and crannies. It will start to wrap up any day. Have no fear Caddis, PMDs', Yellow Sallies and other little tidbits are filling in on the buffet line. Seeing fish start to work them. Pull a couple rows of big bugs out of the box and fill in with the little dudes. We are about to hit summer caddis mode. Might be harder to see that dry after size 4,6,and 8's, but it is all good. For great caddis action we need the sun to start blazing and get things cranking.

Salmon fly and golden stone action continues. Getting light toward Maupin, but still got them to eat the big bugs yesterday. Plenty of caddis showing up and fish starting to work them.  Time to make some room in the boxes for PMD's, Caddis and little Yellow Sallies.
Big Bugs still pretty thick around Warm Springs. Clarity is better and level is decent. Fishing has been good. We are the down ward side of the hatch though. Hard to say how long we'll be able to throw the big stuff. Enjoy it while you can.  We have just a few days open and just a few days left to get 2011 hatch. 

Caddis is coming and hopefully solid summer weather. July is a great time for summer float trips, if you are wondering what to do this summer it is a great trip.

Water looked like it was dropping and still continues to fish pretty darn good. Big bugs thick around Warm Springs and tapering toward Maupin, but fish still looking up. Warmer weather and lowering river and should continue to fish well. The last couple days where pretty darn good. Seeing more caddis and scattered PMDs. Get out and enjoy before the big ones are gone. Sounds like the last report, but it has been pretty consistent from decenent to real good the last 8 days. Still cover lots of trees and banks and keep looking.

Salmon flies and golden stones from Warm Springs down. Getting thick up that way and has been fishing pretty well. Staring to thin out around Maupin, but still got fish to look up on the big dries. Scatterd PMDs, caddis, and saw a few green drakes pop yesterday. Fishing has been consistenly decent, not ripping, but cover the banks, and trees keep plugging and there has been some real good days despite the weather that can't make up its mind. As river drops and weather stabilize look for more fish to lock on and the fishing to maintain or even get better. Get out there the big bugs are popping and before you know it gone.
