Lower DEschutes River Fish report 05-29-07

Deschutes River- Lower - Maupin, OR

by The Riffle Fly Shop
(541) 388.3330

The Salmonflies and Golden Stones are rolling from Warm Springs down to the Maupin area! The hatch is nearing the peak above Whitehorse. Fish are keyed in to the big bugs in many areas, but not all. If you fish the right water you will find trout eating them. The afternoons and evenings continue to be best with the egg-laying flights of the female stones and goldens happening later in the day. In the morning nymphing continues to be productive with the hot flies beeing emergent sparkle pupae, soft hackles, and small mayfly nymphs in dark colors. We are still seeing really good caddis activity in the evenings, and strong Little Yellow Stones most days. PMD's are now a big part of these fish's diet, even during the peak of the Salmonfly hatch. The back eddies are starting to fish pretty well with small dries. Water temps are around 52-54 degrees near Warm Springs now.
