Lower Deschutes River Fish Report 07-12-07

Deschutes River- Lower - Maupin, OR

by The Fly Fishers Place

Its a caddis show for the next couple of months down here.?? It seems at times that the hotter the day, the more intense the caddis hatch are at night.?? The times when the sun is off the water, dawn-10 am and 5pm-dark can have amazing dryfly action.?? During the heat of the day, deep nymphing is the rule.?? However, keep your eyes on the foam lines and eddies, fish will rise all day if they feel safe. In addition, keep an eye out for PMDs and PEDs.?? Mayfly spinners at dusk are a good bet.?? Tan/Brown/Green caddis are hatching as well.?? 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.?? Nymph with smaller stuff in the #10-20 range.

Dries: X-Caddis, Henryville, CDC Caddis, Yellow comparadun, Light Cahill, Rusty Spinner.

Nymphs: Copper John, soft hackles, peasant tail, Angle Case emerger, sparkle pupa, serendipity, prince, green rock worm, swing wooly buggers (on sinking line!!).
