Deschutes River Trout Creek-Maupin


Trout Creek-Maupin

The salmon fly hatch is about over on this stretch. We were able to catch some fish on the big bugs in the beginning of the float. But the action slowed down as we progressed downstream, with last fish being caught on a stonefly dry at Whitehorse. Below, the best action came nymphing. With small copper johns, caddis pupae, etc.. producing best. For the dry fly purists we are in between hatches at this point. There are a few caddis around and with overcast weather you can expect some mayfly hatches. Within a week or two the caddis will become more abundant and become the main food source for the fish. Dry fly fishing with elk hairs and x-caddis on the banks and in the riffles will be most productive.
