Euro Nymphing is Our #1 Way to Fish

The Middle Deschutes is another good option from just upstream of Bend all the way down to Lake Billy Chinook. The PMD hatch is coming to an end but the Blue Wing Olives are taking up that slack. In most areas you’ll find a good caddis hatch too. Euro Nymphing is our #1 way to fish this entire stretch for sure, but indicator fishing or dry/dropper rigs are going to be good too. Lately we’ve found a Frenchie, Soft Hackle PT and a Cream 2 Bit Hooker to be the top nymphs. In the evening a Sparkle Pupa or other tan colored Caddis Pupa is a smart choice. I always say my favorite dry fly on the Middle river is a Renegade. A lot of that dates back to the 80’s when I first learned the river, but backed up by the fact that was also Harry Teel’s favorite dry too. For those of you who don’t know that name, Harry was the founder of the shop here in 1986. He was a dry fly legend.
