Deschutes River Redside Trout & Summer Steelhead Report
————————————————————————————
Deschutes Red Side Trout Report:

Fishing is pretty good, but sporadic at times. Trout are looking up to the Salmon flies, but are keyed more on the Golden stones, simply because there are more of them. 
The Yellow Sally Stones are out, so if your not getting results on the big bugs, switch to your smaller size 16 Sally patterns.

Mornings are fishing a little better, but it does pick up in the afternoons. Fish those classic runs and riffles we all love to fish. Of course, if they’re not looking up, fish Nymphs and Wet flies in fast deep runs with lots of structor. You will need to add weight to get your flies deep enough to help your odds.

Yesterday we saw a PMD’s hatch around 1 pm, and trout fed on the dries for a good 30 minutes. PED’s are hatching from 2 to 4 pm, and we are getting Green Drakes!  
BWO’s are hanging in there. they hatch between 11am and 3pm. Keep a sharp eye cause they’re small and not always that easy to see. Check those little micro back eddies in the foam lines. They often accumulate in those small areas.

Pattern suggestions: Lightening Bugs, 16’s, Rainbow Warriors, 16’s &18’s. Hares Ear Soft Hackle, 14’s & 16’s, Prince Nymphs, 10’s and 12’s, Sparkle Pupa’s, 14’s & 16’s, Soft Hackles, 14’s, CDC BH Pheasant tails, 14’s, & 16’s Double bead caddis, 14’s and 16’s. We will show you some other new patterns that have just arrived that we think will help change the minds of some of those stubborn red side trout.

River level is 4,150 CFS and the water temperature is 53 degrees. Weather is supposed to be in the 80’s next week!

I encourage you to click on “Monthly Hatch Chart” to see what you can expect during this month. Its also a great way to get a sneak preview of hatches in the months ahead.

Deschutes River Redside Trout & Summer Steelhead Report

Deschutes Red Side Trout Report:

Fishing is improving. It’s been sporadic, but trout are starting to take Salmon fly and Golden stone adults off the surface. They are still keyed in more on the big nymphs, so keep fishing those. As always, if they are not taking the stones, dry or wet, switch to your smaller patterns.

Mornings and evenings still a little slow, best fishing is between 12 till 5 pm. Fish those classic runs and riffles we all love to fish. Of course, if they’re not looking up, fish Nymphs and Wet flies in fast deep runs with lots of structor. You will need to add weight to get your flies deep enough to help your odds.

Yesterday we saw a PMD’s hatch around 1 pm, and trout fed on the dries for a good 30 minutes. PED’s are also making an appearance, not in big numbers yet, but it’s early. 
BWO’s are hanging in there. they hatch between 11am and 2pm. Keep a sharp eye cause they’re small and not always that easy to see. Check those little micro back eddies in the foam lines. They often accumulate in those small areas.

Pattern suggestions: Lightening Bugs, 16’s, Rainbow Warriors, 16’s &18’s. Hares Ear Soft Hackle, 14’s & 16’s, Prince Nymphs, 10’s and 12’s, Sparkle Pupa’s, 14’s & 16’s, Soft Hackles, 14’s, CDC BH Pheasant tails, 14’s, & 16’s Double bead caddis, 14’s and 16’s.

Deschutes River Redside Trout & Summer Steelhead Report

Deschutes Red Side Trout Report:

Salmon Flies are out, but not all that many. Things are just getting started with the big bugs. This is the best time for fishing the nymphs, although trout have been taking a few off the top. It will improve over the next couple of weeks!

Trout fishing is alright. Mornings are slow, it picks up during the day and is best from about 1 to 4 pm. Fish slower runs and toward the end of riffles. Of course, Fish Nymphs and Wet flies in deep runs with lots of structor. You will need to add weight to get your flies deep enough to help your odds.

BWO’s is a safe bet. they hatch between 12pm and 2pm. Check those little micro back eddies in the foam lines. They often accumulate in those small areas. Starting to see a few March Browns. They should hatch off and on for the next 2 weeks. Fish your March Brown patterns in runs below fast riffles and in deep runs along steep banks.

Pattern suggestions: Small Stone fly nymphs 8's & 10's, BWO nymphs and emergers 16's, Possy Buger's 10's & 12's, Lightening Bugs, 16’s, Rainbow Warriors, 16’s &18’s. Hares Ear Soft Hackle, 14’s & 16’s, Prince Nymphs, 10’s and 12’s, Sparkle Pupa’s, 14’s & 16’s, Soft Hackles, 14’s, CDC BH Pheasant tails, 14’s, & 16’s Double bead caddis, 14’s and 16’s. We will show you some other new patterns that have just arrived that we think will help change the minds of some of those stubborn red side trout.

River level is 4,650 CFS and the water temperature is 48 degrees.
