The Middle Deschutes is running high. If you know where to look there are some streamer and nymph opportunities, but careful wading is required.

We are about a month away from the Little Black Stones. If you tie flies, tie some #14 and 16 Float & Fools and Black Bucktail Caddis in a #14 or 16 to match them and then plan your fishing days around the irrigation districts stock runs if possible to experience the best wading conditions of the winter season. I’ll report here when I know they are happening.
