Deschutes River Trout Fishing Report

Trout fishing on the Deschutes River is ramping up despite the high water.  I guided the Maupin area the past couple of days and was surprised how good the fishing was with 8500 cfs rolling down the river.  The wind blew like hell out of the northeast and we even had some good rain showers but the fish didn't seam to mind.  Although we saw tons of golden stoneflies in the bushes, we found all of our fish nymphing.  Kyles Bead Head Yellow Sally was by far the preferred nymph (available at The Fly Fishing Shop in Welches, Oregon).  We also found some nice fish on my Copper Back Yellow Sally.  We should have some good dry fly fishing with the big bugs when the weather warms up but I would definitely have these nymphs in your box if you're headed out to the Deschutes.

Good Luck!
