Deschutes River Steelhead Report:

So, now we are into early August, and showing signs of things loosening up with steelhead action. A few hardy steelhead have found their way passed the warm water temps down towards the mouth of the Deschutes, and managed to thrill some steelheaders fishing between Beavertail and Macks Canyon.

Now that they are releasing water from the bottom of the Pelton reregulating dam. this should help steelhead movement throughout the rest of this month. Sharpen you hooks, see ya soon!

Trout: 
Deschutes River Redside Trout Report:

High day time temperatures are still below average making it nice to fish a little longer without feeling wiped-out. Best time to fish in the morning is from 6 until 10, and for evening fun, from 6 PM until dark. Midday will be slow, but you can still get trout to grab flies in the fast runs, pocket water, and shady tree covered areas.

Caddis flies and Equatic Moths is the dominant hatch until the first part of September. . One thing to keep in mind, the Moth hatches in the middle of the night, so, trout feed on the emergers and adults from 1 till 3 AM. Now, the spent stage of that bug is very available to trout in the morning hours. Use a spent caddis pattern to initate it as well as caddis of course.     

Patterns to have with you: BWO’s, 18’s, Net Spinning Caddis 16’s, Cased Caddis size 20, Crane flies 16’s, and Midge in size 20.     

Hatches/Best times to fish: Spent May flies, Caddis, Equatic Moth, 16’s, and Midge pupa in the AM hours. Bwo’s size 18, late morning, Crane flies and Caddis afternoon til dark. 

Stay close to the banks and shady tree areas where you see foam lines when fishing spent Caddis dries, May fly duns, & May fly spinners. In the morning, stock fish in slow softer water below a riffle, and in back eddies, fish your Blue Wing Olive dries and emergers, & Midge pupa, Also don’t pass up those slack water areas inside current edges, and slow swirly white foam lines on those rocky steep bank runs.

Midday, fish fast water runs and pockets within those faster water types. Try some midsize attractor patterns, (8’s down to 14’s), on a two fly rig and an indicator to maybe pick up a fish or two before and after the “hopeful” midday hatch.

Switch flies often, unless of course your having success, and don’t forget to extend your tippet lengths to keep the fly drifting as long as you can, it will pay off.                      Get out there!

If you have Q’s, Please don’t hesitate to call, John, Nate, Joe, & Bruce will be glad to help!         (541) 395-2565,

Deschutes River Redside Trout / Steelhead Report:

Not many steelhead have been caught last week. Better numbers over The Dalles Dam. At least they're on the way. Water is warm at the mouth of the Deschutes. This should change on the first of August when they star releasing water from the bottom gates.

Weather is warm, but not hot. We are now into the summer fishing routine of starting early, and fishing late. Best time to fish in the morning is from 6 until 10, and for evening fun, from 6 PM until dark. Midday will be slow, but you can still get trout to grab flies in the fast runs, pocket water, and shady tree covered areas.

Fewer May flies are hatching now, still a light amount of PMD's around, and fair numbers of PED's. Caddis flies and Equatic Moths are king now. One thing to keep in mind, the Moth hatches in the middle of the night, so, trout feed on the emergers and adults from 1 till 3 AM. Now, the spent stage of that bug is very available to trout in the morning hours. Use a spent caddis pattern to initate it as well as caddis of course.     

Patterns to have with you: PMD's size 16, PED's size 12, BWO’s, 18’s, Net Spinning Caddis 16’s, Cased Caddis size 20, Yellow Sally Stones 16’s, Crane flies 16’s, and Midge in size 20.     

Hatches/Best times to fish: Spent May flies, Caddis, Equatic Moth, 16’s, and Midge pupa in the AM hours. Bwo’s size 18, late morning, PMD’s size 16, 10AM til 12:00 PM, PED’s size 12, late afternoon, Yellow Sally Stones size 16, Crane flies and Caddis afternoon til dark. 

Stay close to the banks and shady tree areas where you see foam lines when fishing spent Caddis dries, May fly duns, & May fly spinners.
