The Upper Deschutes is fishing fair. Dry-dropper setups are very fun on the Upper. For the dropper we like nitro caddis, psycho prince, and rainbow warriors. Stripping streamers around some of the downed timber and undercut banks is also a good way to fool some fish. Euro and indicator methods of nymphing have been working well out there as well. The Upper Deschutes is a gorgeous place to fish so get out there and get after them.
