If you want to find some great dry fly fishing without the crowds on one of Oregon's finest blue ribbon trout streams and with-in 2 hours of the Portland airport- come join us on the Deschutes River! In July caddis flies and mayflies consistently hatch each day providing the fly fishing angler prime opportunity at strong wild trout. Much of our fishing this time of year is visual where we spot the fish and cast to it - watching the fish rise to the fly is a thrill!
Our favorite gear for trout fishing in July are #4 or #5 weight fly rods armed with floating lines. On the end of these lines we use a tapered leader that finishes up on the business end with 5X tippet. To this we add on a variety of caddis dry flies. Morning and evening hatches are the norm and mid-day fishing can be excellent as well.
Whitewater, canyon scenery, wildlife and great fishing await in the Deschutes River canyon. Managed carefully by the BLM this river gem is listed as a Wild & Scenic River a designation only found on few of Oregon's best rivers.
Evening Caddis hatch time!
