Macks to the Mouth 15-18 October
Higher water levels in October are par for the course on the Deschutes. Clarity is good and water temps are in the low 50's. We have been catching fish dispite the change in river flow. We ended up with 8 fish in 3 days with the highest production day being yesterday afternoon. The good news is the fish we have been catching are quality natives. The landing rate is about 30% for this trip and out of the 8 only one was a hatchery. We get a big push of large steelhead in the lower river each October. Fishing by sled from Mack's Canyon can put you all by yourself in a matter of minutes. Look forward to seeing you!
