Central & Eastern Fishing Report for June 5th

Golden Stones are on the wane on the lower Deschutes with perhaps another week during which trout will readily take imitations. Often they response continues even after the bugs have gone.

Big bugs are thick now from Warm Springs to Mack’s Canyon as the hatch works its way upstream. In addition to these larger insects, Caddis are hatching in abundance as well. It’s worth mentioning that…

Water levels are below normal on the lower Deschutes although waders might enjoy exploring areas normally off limits to them at this time of year. Drift-boaters would be wise to use extra cautions in these conditions. With an early appearance of stoneflies this year, fishing has been fair to good although redsides have yet to…

When charter boats have been able to get out of Depoe Bay to the fishing grounds, onboard anglers were treated to limits of rockfish, anxious to hit their offerings. Ling cod were a little off the bite but decent numbers were landed in the course of the day. Ocean crabbing remains slow as it has…

Central & Eastern – Cold mornings on the lower Deschutes have delayed insect activity until a reasonably civilized time of day. There’s far more activity in the middle of the morning and even after lunch than at the crack of dawn and the fishing is more comfortable for the angler as well. Swinging nymphs has…

Central & Eastern – Keep those Blue Winged Olive patterns handy for redsides on the lower Deschutes; that’ll be a primary pattern for at lease the next couple of weeks’ Pale Morning (and Evening) Duns will come into play but perhaps of most importance to fly fishers on the D, watch for Stoneflies and Salmonflies.…
