The Lower Deschutes in Maupin is fishing pretty well already for as chilly as it’s been. Euro nymphing with Perdigons, Rainbow Warriors, Green Prince, Hares Ears and Micro Mayfly BWO Nymphs.
A friend from Portland said he was down there swinging his trout spey and had some good luck too. But Mattias & Drew from the shop really whacked ’em fishing heavy nymphs.
Water temps are 44F. That is cold, so be prepared for that.
