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 … Continue reading Lower Deschutes fishing report 11/22/19
The report guy is going fishing in Cuba 11/1 to 11/14 so unless the weather gets crazy this report should hold up until he is back. The water temps plummeted into the 40's from the comfortable 50's earlier this week and turned the fishing a little slow for a few days. Up to that point … Continue reading Lower Deschutes River fishing report 11/1/19
Sorry for the delayed report, the report guy had to go in for emergency surgery and wasn't energetic enough to get his Sh*t together. The FFP guides have been having a lot of good days on the Warm Spring to Trout Creek run. The crew are finding some steelhead and plenty of trout. Travis even … Continue reading Lower Deschutes River fishing report 10/23/19

the fishing this week on the WS to TC section was outstanding for trout, and we've heard reports of a couple of steelhead being caught up there too.

PT, Hares, Ear, Prince, … Continue reading Lower Deschutes fishing report 9/14/19
I just talked to a friend of mine who caught 2 steelhead this week. That is excellent news as the counts look pretty poor so far up the Columbia. Our guides are doing well on trout on the Warm Springs drift using ESN techniques and also indicators. Some of the action is also coming by … Continue reading Lower Deschutes report 8/24/19
FFP guides are busy on the Lower Deschutes and finding very fun fishing with Caddis, PMD's and Purple Haze. Our crew is hitting it hard with the Euro Nymphing techniques and doing well, but there are spots a good ol' indicator rig will serve you quite well.
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
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.
the guides are coming back all smiles and keep grabbing caddis to restock their boxes. PMD's and Pale Evening duns are also bringing up fish for the dry fly. Never leave home without a Purple Haze on the D. Nymphing has been great, both indicator and euro.
