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 warmer weather … Continue reading Metolius River fishing report 7/13/19

Also getting some fish on Chironomids and it's been cool to see as the water has warmed up to the 60's the action is going deeper (15 to 18' at the moment). … Continue reading East Lake fishing report 7/13/19
