Deschutes River Trout Fishing Report
Just when you thought the Deschutes River was going to finally settle down, the flows jumped from the mid 6000 cfs range back into the 7080 cfs. Such is life on the Deschutes this spring... Oh wait, it's mid June.
Despite the big water, the fishing has remained pretty damn good. Lot's of bugs! We've been having some good hatches of PMD's, PED's, caddis and yellow sallies. The fish are still taking golden stoneflies though the hatch is pretty much done. On days the fish aren't willing to rise to dry flies, we've had great success fishing tan caddis pupas and yellow sally nymphs.
