The Lower Deschutes has been fishing fair. Caddis and PMD’s make for dry fly opportunities on some days but nymphing remains the most consistent method for picking up fish. Utilizing split shot or tungsten bead flies will be to your advantage to make sure they're getting down nice and deep. Two-bits, duracells, nitro-caddis, and psycho princes are some of our favorites on the Lower. Swinging streamers is also a fun way to target some more aggressive trout and get some tight line grabs.
