Deschutes River Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon
Cory Godell, Deschutes River Anglers

The entire Lower Deschutes River will be open in less than a month. Mostly what goes on for the first three weeks or so is nymphing. But, by mid May is when the Deschutes is firing on all cylinders. That is when the mother of all hatches is starts to go. The all mighty Salmon Fly Hatch. On most years, it generally starts around the middle of May and goes through a small chunk of June. This is the hatch that everyone should fish at least once in their lifetime. But odds are if you fish it once you will continue to fish it year after year. There’s a reason this is the most popular time of the season to be on the Deschutes.
