Euro Nymphing during the day and Dry Fly fishing in the evening has been out MO this week. The wind was a bit tough for a couple of days this week but it looks like the weather is going to be hot and steady for the upcoming week which to me says caddis are going … Continue reading Lower Deschutes fishing report 7/20/19
Callibaetis hatches have been strong on the lake throughout the afternoon and usually a second go at it in the evening. Caddis and Midges are strong at dusk. Lot's of good fishing this week on Black Leeches. My guess is a lot of these are getting eaten because of the tadpoles getting ready to hatch … Continue reading Three Creeks Lake fishing report 7/20/19
jeez, there are still days with pretty high moss clumps in the flow, and it's certainly possible to work around them by moving to other areas of the river, you may also be patient enough to fish through it and just accept the fact sometimes you have to clean your flies off. Interesting results from … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 7/20/19
The upper river is improving with more golden stones and yellow sally's hatching. It can be very fun to fish a Clark's Stone or Norm Woods Special along the banks and fishy looking runs and log jams. the rest of the river is getting PMD's, Blue Wing Olives, a few caddis, an evening spinner fall … Continue reading Metolius River fishing report 7/20/19

we love July on the lower D with Caddis, Pale Evening Dun and PMD hatches. Our FFP guides have been having great days down there, typically nymphing during the day and hitting the dries as the sun goes off the water.
lots of Callibaetis during the day, some damsels, ants, beetles, Chironomids and leeches. Fishing is very good from morning to dark. If you go in the morning or evening make sure to have bug spray. Lots of mosquitos looking to blood.
I had another super week guiding at Crane on the resort/Deschutes Channel side. I heard from some friends and customers that Quinn area was also good. Balanced Leeches were best for us. Definitely getting fish on Chironomids too. I'd call the fishing at CP quite good. Steve had a fun trip to Hosmer with guests … Continue reading Crane & Hosmer report 7/13/19
The FFP guides have been hitting the Crooked nearly everyday, and we are happy to report the drifting algae is not gone completely, but way better. Most of the catch8ing has come with a nymph. Jigs, Perdigons, Scuds, Micromay's and Zebra's are great. Some dry fly fishing with PMD's, Parachute Adams, Griffiths Gnat, Ants, Hoppers … Continue reading Crooked River fishing report 7/13/19

PMD's can be anytime between 11 am and 8 pm, and BWO's have been late afternoon to about 7 pm. Caddis have been pretty slow the last 2 weeks. The warmer weather … Continue reading Metolius River fishing report 7/13/19
