Deschutes River Redside Trout Report
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
R E D S I D E  T R O U T:
Happy 4th everyone! Redside Trout fishing has been a little tough. Most activity is in morning and evening with a few fish hooked midday with nymphs.

It's a may fly, caddis and midge game now, and will remain that for the rest of this summer into fall. For the most part, the largest size fly you'll tie on will be a PED size 12. Other than that, everything else will be a 16 down to 20.

May flies: Pale Evening Duns are size 12, hatch from 3 to 6PM. Pale Morning Duns size 16, hatch from 1 to 3PM. BWO's size 18, hatch from 11AM to 1PM.

Net Spinners size 16, and the Igloo Case Builders size 20. All three of these caddis typically hatch in the afternoon, anytime between 2 until 7 PM. Some folks are seeing caddis flying around in the morning, but those hatched the day before and are just flying around, landing on the trees and grasses along the bank prepping to mate. After mating, they will return to the river to lay their eggs toward the end of the day. 
 
The middle of the day fishes good, mornings somewhat slow and evenings showing signs of improvement. Best bet is to fish your May Fly patterns from 11AM until 4PM, and fish your Caddis patters from 3 until 8PM or later. If nothing is happening, try a variety of mid-sized nymphs, (Prince Nymph, Stone Fly Nymph,..), on a two fly grig with a small nymph or emerger with some flashy material.

If you’re getting refusals using the adult stones, trail a “dry” Yellow Sally about 15” behind the adult stone fly. Use no less than 5X tippet material.    

Best water types to fish. Back eddies, steep bank runs with foam lines, riffles, and down stream of riffles where the water slows and deepens. Try some of the heavier water a little further out right in the seam just inside the dancing waves.

Thanks, see ya soon

Its going to be really hot this weekend and into next week. 103 to 107 degrees is predicted. It's a may fly, caddis and midge game now, and will remain that for the rest of this summer into fall.

Golden Stones and Yellow Sally’s still lingering and turning trout heads. I find that fishing with the stone adults after the hatch has faded, can be very good because trout know what they are, there are fewer of the naturals, so the trout are less picky when it comes to rising to your artificial.  

May flies: Pale Morning Duns, Pale Evening Duns and a few Green Drakes.
Pale Evening Duns are size 12, hatch from 3 to 6PM. Pale Morning Duns size 16, hatch from 1 to 3PM. and Green Drakes size 10, hatch anytime from noon to 4PM. 

Net Spinners size 16, and the Igloo Case Builders size 20. All three of these caddis typically hatch in the afternoon, anytime between 2 until 7 PM. Some folks are seeing caddis flying around in the morning, but those hatched the day before and are just flying around, landing on the trees and grasses along the bank prepping to mate.

Who are these people that are saying the stone fly hatch is over ?! It’s far from over. In fact there are still stone fly nymphs crawling from the river. The last few trips out have been wonderful, with the occasional slow spot, the fishing, or “catching as we say”, is still GOOD! Three different stone flies are now hatching, Salmon Flies, Golden Stones and Yellow Sally’s !

The May flies are: Blue Winged Olive, Mahogany Duns, Pale Evening Dun and Green Drakes !!!
The BWO’s are a size 18 and hatch from around noon until about 2 PM. The Mahogany Duns are size 16 and hatch from about 1 until 3 PM. Pale Evening Duns are size 12, and hatch from 1 to 5PM, Green Drakes size 10, hatch anytime from noon to 4PM. 

Caddis hatches are the Free Livers size 14, Net Spinners size 16, and the Igloo Case Builders size 20. All three of these caddis typically hatch in the afternoon, anytime between 2 until 5 PM. Some folks are seeing caddis flying around in the morning, but those hatched the day before and are just flying around, landing on the trees and grasses along the bank prepping to mate. After mating, they will return to the river to lay their eggs toward the end of the day. 
 
The middle of the day is still fishing better than the mornings and evenings, but that will change later this spring. Best bet is to fish your May Fly patterns from 11AM until 3PM, and fish your Caddis patters from 2 until 5PM or later. If nothing is happening, try a variety of mid-sized nymphs, (Prince Nymph, Stone Fly Nymph,..), on a two fly grig with a small nymph or emerger with some flashy material.

If you’re getting refusals using the adult stones, trail a “dry” Yellow Sally about 15” behind the adult stone fly. Use no less than 4X tippet material.
