Lower Deschutes Update August 5, 2022

The Lower Deschutes has been fishing well. Nymphing is the most consistent method for picking up fish throughout the day but caddis are around and having a nice variety of sizes and colors in your box for when the fish key into them is a good idea. When the fish aren’t feeding on the surface, a variety of caddis and mayfly nymphs have been effectively fished euro style or under an indicator. Swinging sculpin and leech streams or soft hackles is also a fun way to get some grabs. 


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
