The stones are out on the Deschutes and the fishing should be good

Deschutes River - Maupin, OR

by Oregon Fly Fishing Blog

The stones are out and the fishing should be good for nymphs and fair for the big dry stones. If you can handle the crowds and the cooler temperatures, the usual dry stones should prove to be effective, Norm Woods, Half Down Golden, Clark's Stonefly, and Chubby Chernobyl. For nymphs; red copper john, tungsten trout retriever, Kaufmann stone, pheasant tails and prince nymphs. Memorial Day weekend is usually the kickoff for the rafting/fishing season for the Deschutes. Let's be safe, courteous, and have fun out there!
