The Middle Deschutes is seeing a Stonefly Hatch from Steelhead Falls up toward Bend. 
Pale Morning and Pale Evening Duns will be hatching now and all summer. 

BWO’s can be a very important hatch, but overlooked this time of year because we think of them as a spring and fall hatch here. Don’t forget the little guy. 

The Caddis hatch in the evening is outstanding. We like an X Caddis on this stretch, and run a Tan 14-16 and Olive 16. 

Purple Haze, Renegades, Stimulators and Float & Fools are excellent attractors. 

Tons of nymphing opportunities especially with the Euro rigs.
