Lower Deschutes: Our Guide Team said the opener on the Warm Springs to Trout Creek drift was really good. March Browns, BWO’s and a few PMD’s popping the surface action, but mostly just excellent nymphing.
Salmonflies are only a few weeks away (at most) so black stonefly nymphs are working really. well.
Red Copper John and Caddis Pupa have been killer flies. Jig’s and Perdigons of course, Hares Ear, Yellow Soft Hackle, Rainbow Warrior and Psycho Prince’s are all excellent too.
