The Middle Deschutes is fishing well in the higher flows. In about 2 to 3 weeks the irrigation draw down will be on for Summer and it will be a lot easier to access.

Some skawla hatch activity going on. Not many March Browns yet. Seems like April is best for them.
Euro Nymphing is really the way to go. Streamer fishing too.

The nice thing about the Middle D is how much room there is to spread out from crowds considering we consider the Middle River to be the stretch from Bend down to Lake Billy Chinook. That is a lot of water with a ton of access points.
