The Caddis Hatch on the Lower Deschutes is great. It doesn’t always mean the fish are eating them on top, so prepare with the Pupa deep and just under the surface and have a selection of emergers and caddis adults for the dry fly times. My friend Chester went Wednesday evening and Thursday evening after he left Crane Prairie with me and said the evening bank risers were active both nights. 

Pale Evening Dun and Pale Morning Dun hatches have also been good, with Purple Haze, Yellow Sparkle Dun, Yellow Parachutes and Soft Hackles matching those hatches. 

Euro and Indicator nymphing techniques have both been good.
