Deschutes River Fish Report for 5-22-2021
The Upper Deschutes opened this morning
Deschutes River - Maupin, OR
by The Fly Fishers Place
The Middle Deschutes stoneflies have mostly passed but there are still a few around and pockets of importance for the big bugs for about another week. It is mostly caddis, PMD, PED and some baetis.
Lots of incredible Euro Nymphing to be had through the Bend to Lake Billy Chinook access points, so no matter what time of day you get to the river there will be opportunity.
The Upper Deschutes opened this morning. That means the sections above Benham Falls up to Wickiup, the Browns Mtn area between Wickiup and Crane Prairie, and the section we refer to the headwaters from Crane Prairie up to Little Lava Lake.
No reports yet, but some of the shop staff were headed up there today.
My guess is they will hit them on streamers in the log jams, Euro nymphs in the runs and maybe see some PMD hatches on top. History repeats itself you know!
