Lower Deschutes Fishing Report 9/26/17

The real fall weather we got last week got the fish moving and we have had good days down on the lower D.

We are getting fish on Stonefly Nymphs, Worms, Small Mayfly Nymphs, Caddis Pupa, October Caddis and Copper Johns.

A few fish have been caught on X Caddis, BWO’s, stragglerPMD’s and Purple Haze.

Trout are also being caught on the swing using Sculpins and Wooly Buggers on sink tips. Get your Micro Spey or 3, 4 or 5 weight Switch Rods out and tune up your Spey game.

Steelhead fishing is fair. A few fish are being caught down from Maupin to the Mouth swinging. There are some fish all the way to WS, but so far numbers are low.
We expect October to improve but keep in mind the 2017 run is going to be a bit low off the historical average.

We have some great opportunities for guide trips with dates open in October. Give us a call and get a trip booked before the season gets cold and you sucked in to the holidays.
