Deschutes River - Below Lake Billy Chinook and Pelton Dam

Tip of the week 

Nymphing with a stone fly nymph as the point fly and mayfly nymph as the dropper.

For dry fly fishing, start focusing on the back eddys and slow banks, with your caddis or mayfly immitation.

Seven-day forecast 

The steelhead season is underway... the catching has been really great at times and slow at other times - but that is steelhead fishing. The best periods are during weather transitions. The slowest times seem to be during consistent high pressure periods.
