Deschutes River Fly Fishing Report

Cory Godell Reports on 7.14.2016

Deschutes River

There are already some steel poking their heads into the Deschutes. There has already been a few caught up as far as Macks Canyon. But the bulk of them are still on there way so it’s still a touch early to put the trout rods away and switch to steelhead. The steelhead fishing doesn’t fully ramp up until mid august, but that’s just a few weeks away....

Deschutes

It’s been another great salmon fly hatch but the bad news is that we are now on the last leg of it. So if you want to fish the big bugs you had better get here in the next week. Otherwise you will have to wait till the 2017 season.

The good news is with this crazy hot weather that’s hitting us right now the caddis hatch is already cranking up. The even...

Deschutes River

Trout -

The Salmon fly hatch is starting to ramp up. The bugs are scattered throughout the entire lower Deschutes River. But we are still several days before primetime kicks in. Do to the better than average winter we just had, it should help keep our salmon flies around longer and the fishing should be good through a chunk of June this year.

Oregon Fly Fishing Report

Winter SteelheadThrough a chunk of December the winter steelhead fishing was all in all good. For the past 10 days or so fishing has slowed due to the lack of rain and low freezing levels. This has made the river crystal clear and water levels to drop a bit on the low side. But just in the past couple of days the freezing level has slowly started to creep up and by the end of the week the...

Owyhee River Fly Fishing Report

Cory Godell, Deschutes River Anglers

We just finished up our last trip of the spring on the Owyhee and things ended great. Because of all the warm and sunny weather we’ve been having, the Caddis have shown up early and in force. In the last two weeks the Owyhee River levelwent from a grim, 14 cfs to a nice 127 cfs. Usually when this happens it knocks the bite off for a few day. Now that the...

The Skwallas may be gone for another year, but because of the warmer than average weather we’ve been having, the Caddis are already showing up in good numbers. When...
