Lower Deschutes River Fish report 05-26-07

Deschutes River- Lower - Maupin, OR

by Fly and Field Outfitters

If you have been wondering about when and the where the salmon fly hatch is happening... listen up.

Trout from Warmsprings to Maupin are gobbling up those big protein packed meals. Yesterday I drifted from Warmsprings to Trout Creek. Trout were eager to slam a well placed imitation. Most of our fish came up to flies drifted down stream or under the bigger trees and bushes.

For the next 3 weeks, expect to be able to fish with the stone fly imitations.

Nymph fishing has been producing some big fish. A stone fly nymph with a PT dropper, or other may fly emerger has been effective. Some caddis are beginning to hatch, and there are still good numbers of midges.

For the next month, fish will be looking to eat stone flies.
