We are also picking up fish in back eddies and feeding lanes on small PMDs and X-Caddis patterns.
expect the fishing to be good for another week or two on the big bugs
and then transition to caddis after that. Last year we had great caddis
fishing in late June and July.
Fishing is still good and the angling pressure is a bit lighter after the
Salmonfly craziness. Warm temps equal wet wading, and caddis fly swarms and some great dry fly fishing!
Camping is exquisite with warm summer evenings and long days and river to always cool off in.
Deschutes River Guided Fly Fishing Trip for the day, or two, or three!
Crooked continues to fish great! The Mothers Day Caddis (Grannoms) are
out and fish are taking dry flies on the surface most of the day. The
peak caddis activity though is in the afternoon.
fish a lot of dry-dropper set ups this time of year. With a hi viz Brown
or Black Caddis on point, with a small PT or Caddis Pupae pattern as
a dropper. Fish are picked up on both through out the day.
trout continue to spawn this month. Watch out and stay away from any
spawning beds you see or you think you see. There is a huge problem on
the Crooked with people actually fishing Redds (trout spawning beds). We
see people, accidentally and sometimes not, fishing or walking through Redds all the time. This is just plan wrong! Keep an
eye out for and stay off any gravel that is 1" or less in diameter.
Redds can be identified is these areas and are usually lighter in color
than the surrounding gravel. Any fish seen with in these areas are most likely in
the act of spawning.
