The Lower Deschutes is great. Lot’s of nymph opportunities in the morning and afternoon and some dry fly action in the eddies and under the trees on the bank lines during the day. Magic really happens in the evening to dusk with Purple Haze, Hi-Viz Partridge Caddis, Yellow Sparkle Duns and Rusty Spinners.
Nymph a caddis pupa for sure! Money. Lots of good flies besides that but always keep the pupa on the dropper and try some PMD Split Case, Micro May, Perdigons, Soft Hackle PT, Rainbow Warrior and Copper Johns.
