Report Date:

The Upper Deschutes has been fishing well. Nymphing will be the most consistent method for picking up fish. Psycho princes, san jauns, durcells, jigged leeches, rainbow warriors, and copper johns are some of our favorites to name a few. Dry-dropper setups can be a fun and effective way to approach these sections of river. Stripping streamers around some of the undercut banks and downed timber is another good way to get some larger fish but can be dangerous on your flies. Like anywhere else this time of year it's also beneficial to have some Caddis and PMD’s on you in case you find yourself in the right place at the right time and find risers.

Suggested Dries: X-Stimulator #12, Black or Tan Elk Hair Caddis #14-18, Black or Tan Foam Caddis #14-18, Purple Haze #14-18, Tilt Wing PMD #14-18, Parachute PMD #14-18, Black Stimulator #14-16, Parachute Adams #14-18, CDC Flying Ant #14-16, Black or Cinnamon Foam Ant #14-16, Hackle Stacker Baetis #16-20, Parachute Baetis #16-20

Suggested Nymphs: Red or Black Copper John #14-18, Red or Black Lightning Bug #14-18, Red or Black Two Bit Hooker #16-20, Guide’s Choice Hare’s Ear #14-18, FB Pheasant Tail #14-18, Juju Baetis #18 - 20, Micro Mayfly #16-20, Pearl or Red Rainbow Warrior #16-20
