Lower Deschutes Update August 19, 2022

The Lower Deschutes has been fishing well. 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. Swingting streamers and soft hackles is also a fun way to target some aggressive trout. Keep an eye out for fish sipping in the back eddies as these can often be fooled by small caddis and mayfly patterns. 


Recommended Dries: Elk Hair Caddis 14-18, March brown #12-14, Hackle Stacker PMD #14-18, Parachute PMD #14-18, Hackle Stacker Baetis #16-20, Parachute Baetis #16-20.

 Recommended Nymphs: Jimmy Legs #8 Black or Brown, Trout Retreiver black or brown #8-10, Jigged Hares Ear #14-16, Jigged Pheasant Tail #14-16, Psycho Prince #14-16, Duracell Jig #14-18,  Copper John #14-18
