The Fly Fishers Place

Report Date:


The Middle Deschutes is fishing good too, but there won’t be too many more weeks for this part of the river. With the higher water it is prime for streamers and nymphing. Small Sculpins, Leeches, Various Jigs, Perdigons, PT’s, Oct. Caddis Pupa, Girdle Bugs and Golden Stone Nymphs.
It would be likely to get fish up to the surface during expected BWO Hatches, look for Mahogany Duns mixed in during the afternoon too, Caddis and attractors like a Purple Haze (my personal favorite Deschutes dry fly), Renegade and small Stimulators. Access from Bend, Tumalo, Lower Bridge and Crooked River Ranch is good.
