Deschutes and Crooked River Fly Fishing Reports

Crooked River  74 CFS

Not much has changed on the Crooked it is in winter mode and fishing has been excellent with all this mild weather. Hatches of midges and BWO's have been the main source for dry fly fishing in the early after noon. Use smaller Adams, Griffiths Gnats, Purple Hazes (sz 18-20+) Nymphing small micro may fly patterns, Orange Scuds, and Midge Pupa will work when nothings happening up top.  Adjust your indicator fairly short, and high stick as much as possible!

Fishing should stay good on the Crooked until they begin to release water from the reservoir in the early spring. The high flows will shut down the fishing depending on how long they release water. On average to low water years the releases are minimal and fishing is back on in May just in time for the Mother's Day Caddis!

Deschutes River  4900 CFS

The section of river bordering the Warm Springs Indian Reservation is closed until the end of April!

The river down stream of the reservation is open year round and there can be some good winter trout fishing to be had. Most venture to the Maupin area to get there trout fix. There is usually very little angling pressure, and there can be some great fishing with hatches of Blue Wings, midges, and later March Browns.

If your interested in fishing the Deschutes during the off season, we give great deals on rates especially if you book a couple days!

The Salmonfly hatch is right around the corner! We are currently booking day and multi day Salmonfly trips starting May 15th.  Book now to secure the best dates!
