Ken was on the Lower Deschutes yesterday and reported awesome fishing. He floated with a couple of regulars from Warmsprings to Trout Creek. The stone fly hatch is still in effect and he reported catching fish on caddis, pmd's and even some green drakes. Can't wait to launch later this morning for 3 days and 2 nights of camping and fishing.

Our friends at VisitBend.com had a great trip on the river with us. They couldn't wait to tell everyone how much fun they had.

The high water event on the Crooked River has subsided. Fishing is improving, but will continue to get better as the water level drops. Be sure to be stocked up with plenty of caddis patterns for the next few days/week. The Mother's Day caddis hatch is in full effect. This blanket hatch is a site to see.
Let the games begin. The river is in prime shape, after the recent high water event. The trout are hungry and fool hardy... Game on! This weekend we had a few successful trips from Warmsprings to Trout Creek. The redbands, where eager to eat nymphs: stone fly, pheasant tails, caddis pupas, and zebra midges. The stone flies, salmon and golden stones nymphs are starting to become very active, and should start their migration in the lowest section of the river in next few weeks. The first emergence of adults have been spotty below sherars falls. By the week of the week, there should be a few popping out as high up as locked gate. If you are fishing on the Lower Deschutes be sure to have beatis (Blue Winged Olive) patterns in nymphs, emergers, and dries. Zebra midge is our favorite. Fishing in the Maupin area is still open and is the best option for access.
