The Middle Deschutes is getting a bit safer for the fish. Mornings from dawn to noon are the best time to hit it. Also in some sections from 7 pm to dark is OK. PMD, PED, Caddis and Euro Nymphing.
The Upper Deschutes in the Headwaters section from Little Lava down to the Road 40 bridge and below to Crane is good. Water should be pumping up a little. I have not talked to anyone that was there this past week to confirm that, but I’d expect good flows and good water temperatures. Look for some Golden Stones, PMD’s, Caddis and don’t for the Ants. Nymph action is great.
