The Deschutes river is still on the high side but below where things were last year at this time. We are hoping for a more moderate spring run-off than last year. It looks like we have a good snow pack so what really will happen with run-off is yet to be seen.
If you are fishing the Deschutes now, look for March browns and blue wing olives to be hatching mid-day. Nymphing with stoneflies, pheasant tails and san juan worms will yeild high water results. Look for the Deschutes Salmon fly hatch to get going the second week of May near Maupin. We still have some spots left so book your spot soon!
