The Deschutes is now in full on Caddis mode. You can catch trout all day on dries if you want. Early morning at sunrise and again at sunset are of course the prime times but through out the day look for shady areas and you will do just fine on caddis adults. PMD's are winding down for the season.

Steelhead: Lower Deschutes steelhead action has been on the slow side due to the lower river water temps warming up.

Suggested steelhead patterns: Summer Run, Green Butt Skunk, Purple Peril, Streetwalker, Freight Train, Purple Articulated Leech, Fly Dejour, Undertaker and Steel Tooka.

Suggested Trout patterns for the month of July. Surface Hatches: Spotted Caddis, Little Yellow Stones,

Patterns: Tan bodied CDC Caddis #14-16, Tan, olive, brown bodied Elk Hair Caddis #14-16, #10, Yellow Body Sallie #14, Almost Dun #16-20 and Pale Morning Duns in size 16-18.
