The Middle Deschutes is an ok bet. Water is high so access is harder until mid April when the canals are all on. Access at Tumalo, Cline Falls, Lower Bridge, Crooked River Ranch/Steelhead Falls. Should be some Skawla Stones any time! Little Blacks are dwindling. Best fishing in the high water is with a streamer or some cool old big stone nymphs and a dropper nymph under an indicator.
