HOT SPRING TROUT

Salmon, Stonefly & Green Drake hatches!

Dry fly fishing has been very good in certain spots, it’s also been really windy, BIG Green Drake hatch. Fish are still eating big Chubbies (Chubby Chernobyl). Green Drakes are working as well. Purple Haze and smallish attractor patterns in the premium dry fly water. Absolute hurricane with the windy conditions lately. Lots of rafters over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Be prepared for ticks, especially walking through tall grass. Rattlesnakes have been a no show so far.  Contact me and let’s book your adventure.

What a beautiful Green Drake specimen from the Deschutes River recently! The river is alive with Birds singing, the trout are hungry, only down side has been the windy conditions but even with that the fish have been happy!

SPRING TROUT

Salmon & Stonefly hatches are on!

With the Stonefly and Salmonfly hatches taking off, surface fishing has been slow to start but is getting better. The fish are starting to focus more on the surface making for some fun action. We’ve even seen a few Drake’s hatching but not too strong as of yet. Fishing has been really good from Warm Springs to Maupin. Today was ok on the lower river, but really windy. Contact me and let’s book your adventure.

The beautiful Deschutes River! Birds chirping, Rainbows willing to eat a well presented fly, what could be better this time of year? Happy client using nymph techniques lands one of quite a few that day! Nymph fishing has been more productive as we wait for the full on frenzy of salmon and stoneflies

FALL STEELHEAD

Today was a good day. The Sun was shinging and one of my favorite clients of all time caught his first steelhead with his dad right at his side. It was a special moment that they will never forget nor will I. Fishing has been consistent and the fish are happy. Contact me and let’s book your adventure.
