The Lower Deschutes is good

The Fly Fishers Place

Report Date:

The Lower Deschutes is good, and remember the Warm Springs side is closed to all fishing now as of 11/1/23 so keep your fishing on waters east of the main channel to respect their water rights.
Stonefly Nymphs and October Caddis Pupa are working well, and Blue or Olive Perdigons, Frenchies, Blue Psycho Prince and Tan Sparkle Pupa’s for your nymphs. Leeches and Sculpins and other euro streamers are great on the drift or the swing.
I just texted one of my favorite customers (Carolina) Phil who took a guide trip with Steve today. While it was super windy they had a ball when Phil and Austin took advantage of our Fall Guide trip special and caught a bunch of nice fish today. No Steelhead today, but not for lack of trying, and seeing some photos of the large redsides they caught, I know they left happy!
I had a good friend down there a few days ago and they had a session of BWO dry fly action below a bank side weed bed that was just awesome. Don’t forget the BWO’s and even some Midges for dry flies this month.
