Caddis Continue to Be The Main Event

The Fly Fishers Place

Report Date:

Down the Lower Deschutes the Caddis continue to be the main event, but PMD and Pale Evening Duns will be very important through summer. 
Caddis Pupa, X Caddis, Finfetcher Caddis, Iris Caddis, Spent Caddis, Elk Hair Caddis and Parachute Caddis will be your hammer time flies throughout the day, especially in the evening as the sun goes behind the canyon and the shadows of evening overtake the water. 

PMD’s and PED’s will be matched with Purple Haze, Purple Comparadun, Parachute Adams, Yellow Parachutes, Sparkle Dun, Comparadun and Light Cahill’s. 

Our guides have been crushing it Euro Nymphing most days. Really fun fishing. We do admit that during the heavy winds we had this week, those conditions made Euro Nymphing really difficult if not darn near impossible to control the drift. It is always smart to be prepared for different conditions and vary your approach accordingly. This can be a dry/dropper or an indicator rig with split shot between the nymphs.
