It's that time of the year again... Deschutes steelhead are showing up in the lower river and life is good. We've been finding fish on a regular basis, but it's been a hunt. Good anglers are finding one to two fish a day. That being said, the dam counts are finally picking up and I'm expecting the fishing to follow suite. For those of you wondering, the water temps. have been 61 to 62 degrees in the mornings and reaching 64 to 69 depending on day time temperatures. The water is still fairly high after the rains from last week. We've been finding fish on floating lines rigged with an intermediate Poly Leader and flies dressed on heavy irons during the low light time periods. Sink-tips have been very effective in both the shade and in full light conditions. So there's the dirt... There's fish to be caught and it's only going to get better. Here's a few shots from the past week or so. -TL
