Deschutes River Steelhead Report- 9/30/09

Just got off another 3 day trip. Fishing started off hot, as we hooked fish in our first 4 out of 5 stops. Then the weather changed a bit, and the bite slowed we were suspecting an unstable barometer to be the culprit. Or maybe we angered the steelheading gods by scoffing at how easy steelhead fishing was becoming. Any ways it was looking to be an average trip as far as numbers goes, the count at 1:00 o'clock on our last day stood at 4 for 5 fish. Then it busted wide open and we managed to hook seven fish in matter of four hours. At one point having a double hook up! Fishing ranged from average to excellent depending on what section of river we were in. Look for the fish to spread out more evenly through October. Water temps are still ideal for dry lines, though the fish we caught were on tips and leaches mainly because these setups were easy casting in the ever present wind.
