The Lower Deschutes from Warm Springs to Trout Creek is fishing well with a lot of caddis still. This time of year, Micro Caddis can be a game changer. Pupa and Adults in #18-20. That doesn’t mean #14-16 Tan, Grey and Olive caddis won’t be around and important, but make sure you’re not overlooking the little stuff. So many of you have drift boats and know this time of year that little black caddis (Little Western Weedy Water Sedges) will cover the side of your boat while your parked and out fishing.
October Caddis Pupa are definitely something to start fishing with now too.
Stonefly nymphs (Black and Golden) are awesome in the Fall.
Still some PMD’s around. Mahogany Duns will make a short but important appearance on the Lower D about now. BWO’s are out and about and will be more important in the coming days and weeks too.
