The Start of the Deschutes Salmonfly Hatch is Near!

Any day now we will see the first Salmonflies of the season on the middle Deschutes, above and below Bend. Because this section of the Deschutes is smaller, and warmer than the lower Deschutes Salmonflies emerge earlier.

Within the first week or two in May Salmonflies will be out on the Lower, lower Deschutes (Maupin on downstream) By Mid May the hatch should be on throughout the Lower Deschutes. With the mild winter, and warm spring I forecast the early fishing to be good!
The hatch should last into June especially up river.

River Borne Outfitters offers guided Deschutes fly fishing day trips and Overnight camp out adventures during the Salmonfly hatch. We are pretty booked up for the first part of hatch, though we have a few dates left, and more availability later.
