The Lower Deschutes at the mouth is getting the first decent steelhead return in a while. I have talked to a few guys that have been down there and that have picked up steely’s on a swung fly. 

Closer to us, the Warm Springs to Trout Creek drift is good. On these hot afternoons it is slower during the day, but mornings and evenings up to dark are great. Caddis, Pale Evening Duns and PMD’s are all hatching well.
