The Maupin area of the Lower Deschutes is running a little off color and high this week during the rapid snow melt. It is getting colder tonight and that ought to clear it up quickly. Upstream of Maupin around Harpham, Nena, Locked Gate can offer good fishing in January, and better in February. Keep it in mind and bring your Euro Rod and fish it well.
I had a VERY interesting exchange with a customer and reader of these reports I wanted to share, because what he said blew my mind. He was fishing Olive Matuka Streamers in the eddies down there, and catching fish. I love that and appreciate so much how this blog is about sharing and learning. And, I really want to try that Matuka now.
