The Warm Springs to Trout Creek section of the Lower Deschutes is fishing well too. Same as Last Week. Nice afternoon fishing in the eddies and under the trees on a smorgasbord of spent and crippled mayflies and caddis.

X Caddis, Rusty and Yellow Spinners, Yellow Knock Down Duns, Spent Partridge Caddis, Silvey’s Dead Caddis, Sparkle Pupa, Poopah, Soft Hackle and a variety of Euro Nymphs have been great for us.
