The Middle Deschutes is fishing really well from Bend all the way to Lake Billy Chinook. Hatches include March Browns, PMD, Pale Evening Dun, BWO, Caddis (X Caddis Tan #14-16, Olive #16) (cornfed caddis #16) Plus Renegades, Purple Haze, Float-n-Fool are awesome patterns for the top.
We have also experienced very good nymph fishing, especially with Brown Perdigons and Soft Hackle PT Jigs.
