Trout Like Steelhead

Deschutes Fishing Report, June 12

I don’t mean that trout are “friends” with steelhead, what I am talking about are top conditioned, bully of the school, 20″ range trout that fight and battle it out like a steelhead.  Hang on to that five weight!  Right now that type of fish is in his element feeding on his favorite gut stretching morsel of the year- Salmon flies and Golden Stones.  With the hatch full swing and soon to be waning in the upper section of the lower 100 miles of the emerald green waters of the Deschutes these big bullies are packing it on and are in full stuff it mode. 

Check out this fish caught June 12th.
