The Lower Deschutes was good this week with bank and eddie sippers throughout the day and increasingly good dry fly action in the evening to dark.
Small X Caddis and Iris Caddis for emergers, Fin Fetcher and CDC Caddis for adults. Purple Haze have been solid, along with PMD Sparkle Duns for the mayfly hatches.
Day time nymphing has been fair. Stonefly nymphs, Caddis Pupa, Micro Mayfly, Soft hackles and Zebra Midges are good.
Steelhead are starting to show up higher than Mack’s Canyon so from Sherars Falls to the Columbia definitely has a good run of steelhead. The guys from the shop that have gone have said it’s ok swinging but better nymphing.
