The North Fork of the Santiam is getting into shape, after a lot of snow melt the river was sneakily high and tough to wade, but is much better now and it’s remained cold and clear. Bring a wading staff and studded boots if you haven’t fished it before. Orange Perdigons, Caddis Pupa, Walts, Frenchies, Light Cahill, X Caddis, Fin Fetcher Caddis and Yellow Sally’s. We like the river best from Pamelia Creek back towards Sisters and around that Marion Forks area. It is going to be our go to for a lot more guided trips as the Crooked is likely going to be too low to fish by the 1st of Sept.
