Fall Steelhead Report: Deschutes River and Willamette River Flyfishing

Wild Deschutes River Steelhead

Here are a few photos from my fall steelhead season on the Willamette and Deschutes Rivers. As in any steelhead season, there have been great days and slow ones. It has been a another busy fall, with a packed schedule of great guests on both rivers.

The recent weather change has done a lot to improve the fishing on the Willamette. The last couple days of cloudy weather with some drizzle really renewed the fishes’ interest in the swung fly.

The fishing on the Deschutes has been good at times, but like steelhead fishing often can be, inconsistent. While we are not looking at a great year over there in terms of the total run, we have been seeing some really nice-sized steelhead, and I have had, on average, better fishing than I have the last couple of seasons thus far.
