The Upper Deschutes was Quiet This Week

Upper Deschutes River

by The Fly Fishers Place

The Upper Deschutes was quiet this week when I drove by it a couple of times. I wished I had the time to fish there, because it is rare to go by and not see any anglers on that stretch from Little Lava to Crane. I’d heard reports from the opener it was good last weekend, mostly on nymphs and streamers so far. Get those streamers in the log jams and undercuts. 
I’d recommend if you are going to have PMD’s, Green Drakes, Ants, BWO’s and Caddis.
