The Lower Deschutes in Maupin is a good spot now. Euro Nymping is what we are finding to work best, but indicator rigs and streamers are worth a go for sure. Locked Gate to Maupin is likely the best spot(s), but give it a whirl all the way to Mack’s Canyon.
This time of year is good for Black and Golden Stonefly Nymphs to be on the move pre-hatch in about 2 months. Never a bad time on the big river to try a big nymph.
Our guide Troy is also offering a spring special guide trip down in the Maupin area now too. So if a float trip and the big river are more of a tug than our spring specials on the Crooked or Fall we can offer that too.
