Lower Deschutes fishing report 11/22/19

We are still guiding the Lower D (and the McKenzie) for the fall. The Warm Springs to Trout Creek drift is fishing well for trout and certainly has some steelhead opportunities too on both the swung fly and on nymphs.
Mecca and Trout Creek and the WS boat launch area are all good drive to and wade options for trout or steelhead until December 31 when it closes.
Stonefly nymphs, October Caddis Pupa, Blue Prince, Batman, 2 Bit Hookers and Zebra Midges are great nymphs under an indicator, and Jigs and Perdigons for our Euro friends.
Swinging now is best on a skagit with a sink tip and a larger black or purple leech or intruder style fly.
Also, a floating line with a Anderson’s Euphoria, Green Butt Skunk or Lady Gaga is an option that will continue to work as the water temps stay ok. When it gets colder, expect to go with the sink tips and intruders.
