The Lower Deschutes has been fishing fair. Nymphing will be the most productive method to utilize and adding a bit of split shot or using flies with tungsten beads will be to your advantage to get your flies down nice and deep. A variety of mayfly and caddis patterns will get the job done and euro and indicator methods will both be effective. Swinging sculpin and leech patterns is also a fun way to target some aggressive trout.
