Our guide Troy has begun his Lower Deschutes season with some back to back guide trips down in the Maupin area. (remember that Warm Springs/Mecca/Trout Creek/South Junction are closed until APRIL 22).

The Lower D right now is fishing very well, almost entirely on nymphs using a combination of techniques, including Euro and Indicators. Stonefly nymphs and small caddis pupa are important. Euro Jigs are rocking it!

We should see March Browns on the Lower Deschutes very soon. BWO hatches are locally important, but not widespread in most areas down there. Look for them in the eddies and margins of the soft riffles.
