The Upper Deschutes from Crane Prairie to Little Lava is a good bet until it closes on Sept 30th. A lot of nice spots for nymphs and small streamers. We haven’t seen many good hatches but try some Ants and Beetles and Hoppers and look for PMD’s and Caddis to be important occasionally. I don’t think I’d go to ANY Western River in the Summer or Fall without PMD’s and Caddis!
The Metolius itself has been in the smoke, but on and off and the AQI has generally been better there......
