Deschutes River - Below Lake Billy Chinook and Pelton Dam

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

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. Caddis is 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 pretty good so far. Expect the fishing to get very good as the month grows old.

There are steelhead all the way to South Junction - expect this week to have some of the best fishing for steelhead of the season.
