Lower Deschutes Update January 5, 2023
The day stretch section of the Lower Deschutes is now closed until April 22 (everything on reservation lands). Theres still lots of good open water if you head down to the Maupen area and get below the boundary. Nymphing has been hot and jigged leeches, eggs, girdle bugs, mighty mays, and zebra midges have all been good flies. Swinging sculpin, leech, and crayfish patterns is also very fun and effective on the Lower. Don't forget your 2024 fishing license if you decide to hit the water!
