The caddis hatch on the Deschutes River is one of my favorite times of year to fish trout. The weather is predicatably warm and dry, the hatches consistent and the trout – steadily feeding on the surface. What a great combination! This is the time of year for delicate presentations and small flies. Floating lines and four or five weight fly rods are idea. For a fun fishing trip only 2 hours from the Portland area the combination of whitewater, wildlife, camping comfort and great trout fishing is something every fly angler needs to experience.
