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. Mayflies are the focus.

Swinging a fly for steelhead has been good lately. Nymphing for steelhead has been GREAT!

Seven-day forecast 

Steelhead are in the river... the fishing has been very productive this year.

There are steelhead all the way to Warmsprings - expect the next 2 weeks to have some of the best fishing for steelhead of the season.
