Lower Deschutes Update October 7, 2022
The Lower Deschutes has been fishing well. Trout fishing remains good and nymphing will be your best bet for picking fish up throughout the day. Utilizing tungsten flies or using a split shot to get your nymph or nymphs down on the bottom is helpful. We like copper johns, two-bits, duracells, and october caddis to name a few. Swinging sculpin, crayfish and leech streamers is also a fun way to target some aggressive fish. There are Steelhead around and we have heard people picking them up swinging flies and nymphing. If you catch a wild fish please keep it in the water and release it quickly.
