Salmon flies are hatching on the Deschutes River right now! Last week we saw the first few flying around the Maupin area and below. Now there are golden stones and black stones flying and trout have started taking them around and below Maupin.
We have seen hatched out salmon flies as far upstream as Warm Springs but that is still a ways out at this point.
River levels have been dropping nicely. We’ll see what happens with this warm weather we are having and if it gives us another shot of snow melt.
Good luck on the water!
