Deschutes River Fish Report 06-15-07

Deschutes River - Maupin, OR


6-15-2007

I debated give the Lower D a "great," as the Warm Springs to Trout Creek section is heating up!  After floating the river for about ten days with swarms of salmonflies and golden stones buzzing around and little action, the fish seem to be keying in on this exciting hatch more and more the last couple of days.  Better late than never!!  In addition, keep an eye out for PMDs and PEDs.  Mayfly spinners at dusk is a good aleternative to salmonflies if the fish are not cooperating.  Tan/Brown/Green caddis are hatching as well.  Cool mornings may see small but intense BWO hatches.  At those times when multiple mayflies and/or caddis are hatching, try an attractor pattern like a purple haze, purple comparadun, or good ol' parachute adams. 

The fish are pretty much off the big stonefly nymphs so nymph with smaller stuff in the #10-20 range.

Dries: Salmonflies (#4-8): Rogue Foam Stone, Low Hanger Stone, goldens (#6-10): Clark's Stone, Bank Robber.  Others: X-Caddis, Henryville, CDC Caddis, Yellow comparadun, Light Cahill, Rusty Spinner.

Nymphs: Copper John, soft hackles, peasant tail, Angle Case emerger, sparkle pupa.

Welll it's that time of year again! You never know when the exact time will be when it seems you can do no wrong and the fishing is just through the roof! Salmonflys nymphs and are in the shallows in the upper and lower streches of the river. The adults are showing in and around the town of Maupin. Fishing has been great if you are in the right spots. The inside seam that you caught your steelhead in last...... Read More
