The Lower Deschutes was good last week on a number of things, but Caddis in most stages were the ticket for our guide team. Fox’s Poopah was one pattern that Steve mentioned was especially hot for him. There have been some fish rising in the afternoons, mostly in the eddies. It is often a smorgasbord of food collecting there, including caddis, BWO, midges, ants and rusty spinners.
Nymphing has been good Euro Style with Jigs and Perdigons. DOn’t be afraid to up your bead size and get deep and drift slow.
Last night, my good friends Chester and Doug found fish on Soft Hackles, X Caddis and Iris Caddis. I would add the HI VIZ Fin Fetcher Caddis to my own list for evening because I am old and need that Hi Viz option… How about you?
