The Maupin area on the Lower Deschutes Report

The Fly Fishers Place

Report Date:

The drive up towards locked gate delivers many miles of good nymph water and the fishing is quite good now down there.

I always liked the Deschutes there in February, but it seems now, this January since it has been relatively mild compared to the cold winters we tend to see, that this section of river is better than average.

Stonefly nymphs, Copper Johns, Perdigons, Caddis Larva (green rock worm) BWO nymphs and zebra midges are patterns we recommend.

I can tell you I once fished an eddy just below Maupin on Super Bowl Sunday and had a good afternoon BWO hatch and several nice redsides to the net, so if any of you are skipping the game in a few weeks, that may be an option.
