The Lower Deschutes has been fishing well. Nymphing is the most consistent method and a variety of caddis and mayfly imitations will get the job done. Prince nymphs, soft hackle PT’s, copper jons, and duracells are some of our favorites down there. Swinging soft hackles and streamers has also been producing some nice fish. Caddis are around and you should have a nice selection of sizes and colors to match the various hatches coming off on any given day. Pmd’s should also be in your box and used to match the early and late dun hatches. It's going to be hot down there this next week so plan accordingly and make sure to bring water.
