On the Upper Deschutes there have been good reports from the area upstream of Crane Prairie to Little Lava Lake. Really good nymph action especially with Euro Nymphing techniques and some good PMD, BWO and Caddis hatches. Ants, Beetles and smaller Hoppers are taking fish too. A Hopper with a Rainbow Warrior or Red Copper John is a dynamite combination up there.
Don’t forget the Upper Deschutes at Sheeps Bridge down to the Gull Point on Wickiup (which is a river now, not a reservoir) is closed as of August 31st.
The area around Bend is good, especially for evening fishing. There are a lot of cool little “town runs” from the Inn of the 7th Mountain area to Tumalo.
