Caddis Fly Hatch on the Deschutes
The Caddis hatch action on the Deschutes is heating up as we are getting warmer weather. The end of June and first part of July have been excellent fishing as the weather is finally cooperating. For best success on caddis fish the edges near grassy banks and trees. See the photo above. Larry K from Florida found this dandy rainbow sipping caddis just inches from a grassy overhang.
Larry and wife Brenda doubled up on this combo by nymphing a riffle in early morning. Before the dry fly action gets going nymph fishing a riffle like this with a green rock worm and a sparkle pupa can yeild good results.
