I thought I would share a few photos that Paul Tsang, a guest I fished with on a recent multi-day Deschutes River trip, was kind enough to send along to me.
It was a great Salmonfly season on the Deschutes this year, and we have the rest of the season to look forward to. Soon, the trout will be keyed in on the river’s prolific hatches of small caddises and mayflies, and will stay on them through the fall. Later this month, the vanguard of the summer steelhead run will start to make its way upstream from the mouth of the Deschutes. The forecast is for another great run of summer steelhead on the Deschutes River. If anyone is interested in doing a guided trip down the Deschutes this season, let me know and we will put something together. Some of the prime dates are already booked, but I have some holes in the schedule here and there. Come enjoy some of the best fly fishing for trout and steelhead that Oregon has to offer!
