The Lower Deschutes is quickly waning on the Salmonfly and Goldenstone hatches and moving to a lot of Caddis, PMD’s and in the evening Pale Evening Duns. 
Our guides have been working that water a lot and Steve, Troy, Danny, Ben and Mary Ann all gave me the same report on Caddis Caddis Caddis becoming more important than the big stones in the last few days. 
They say pupa, emerging pupa at the surface (X Caddis and Iris Caddis) and Adults (Elk Hair, Corn Fed, CDC).
Yellow Sparkle Duns, Parachutes and Purple Haze are great on top and Ben was saying he had a lot of nice catches on Euro Jigs throughout the week.
