The Lower Deschutes has been fishing well. Salmonflies are done now but caddis and PMD’s make for good dry fly hatches on some days. Nymphing is hot and rainbow warriors, two-bits, cj’s, nitro caddis, and two-bits are some of our favorites. Swinging soft hackles and small sculpin patterns is also a fun and productive way to target some fish. The river is in good shape and the fish are active so get out there and find some fish!
