The Lower Deschutes was good all week and Adam had a guide trip with one of our good customers (Dr. George) that was likely the best trip of the season.
All on euro nymphs! Epic. George came in to the shop today on Cloud 9.
Besides that, there are plenty of good nymphing opportunities on Caddis Pupa, Stone nymphs, PT’s, Soft hackles, 3 Dollar Dip, Rainbow Warrior and our new Tungsten Bead Rusty Spinner.
One of my good friends who fishes the river more than any non guide I know and he reports amazingly good dry action on tiny caddis in the eddies and edges.
The White River is BLOWN out. I would not fish below the White.
Steelhead are all over the river and are being caught from Maupin to Mecca. Swinging is preferred but nymphing is certainly productive and will offer a good chance at Redsides and Steelhead. Usually I love both, the swing in the morning and nymphing in the afternoon.
