The famous stone fly hatch A.K.A. the Salmon fly hatch is happening right now the Deschutes River. It case you haven't heard... it is one of the most famous hatches on any western river. Truly it is an experience everyone should have at some point in their fishing careers.

Wednesday evening we returned to Bend after our first trip on the Lower Deschutes for the season. It was great to get back down there. We lucked out, no one else was on the river, we had the entire 32 miles to ourselves. The fishing was very good in a few spots and o.k. in others. The stone fly nymphs are moving around big time. We even saw a few crawling out of the river and molting. It won't be long before the river is teaming with the big bugs. Wednesday's rain brought on a thick mayfly hatch. BWO's, Mahoganies, and a few PMD's where hatching and the trout where chewing on them.
It was a great trip. Check out the photos.
