Deschutes and Crooked River Trout Reports


Deschutes River
Floated Warm Springs to Trout Creek yesterday. Fishing was pretty good for August! Not much dry fly activity, sparse caddis hatches, but nymphing really produced. Copper Johns, sz#12 and smaller micro mayfly and caddis droppers were the ticket. A client of mine even landed a legitimate 20" fish, and some nice 16-18" fish.
We are still booking day and half day floats from Warm Springs to Trout Creek for trout. The river is pretty much empty, except for the rafters and fishing is not bad!

Crooked River

The Crooked is fishing good as well. The average size and numbers are down this year, but there are still plenty of fish. There has been a very consistent PMD hatch coming over in the after noon. Otherwise nymph the pocket water with the little stuff.
