Deschutes River - Below Lake Billy Chinook and Pelton Dam

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

It is Caddis seasson, so seek out those back eddies and seams where fish can comfortably feed on emergers and pupa. If dry fly fishing is slow, nymphing with stonefly nymphs and PT, Hare's Ear, Copper John droppers is a great technique.

Seven-day forecast 

Fishing is turning on with caddis! A lot of the action will still be in the soft water: edges/eddies. Don't overlook targeting over hanging vegetation, fish will hold under this type of cover to feed on pupa and emergers, especially during high sun. PMD's using crippled or emerger patterns for these mayfly species is often critical. Plenty of caddis are out there too. Go deep with your nymphs, if your not losing them, your not using them. Pat's Rubber Legs and a March Brown nymph/soft hackle, PT's, Frenchies, Hares Ear, have been picking up fish.
