Deschutes Salmon Fly Hatch In Full Swing

Numerous reports from the Deschutes suggest both Golden Stone flies and the larger “Salmon Fly” insects are being gobbled up by chunky Rainbow Trout throughout the length of the river. It looks like a couple of cooler days in the near future may slow things a bit but if you are headed that way be sure to have all your favorite adult Stone Fly patterns.

Salmon and Golden stones, get ready!

Some of our favorites are on video at the links below:

Chubby Chernobyl

Langtry Stone Fly

Terranasty Salmon Fly

Half Down Golden Stone

Clark’s Stonefly

Lou sent the photo below from his trip just a couple of days ago and was getting the fish to eat Morrish’s October Caddis. An extended foam bodied pattern designed for an October Caddis adult, but hey, if they eat it they eat it! Try dropping a Red Copper John 18″ off the back of your favorite Stone if things get a bit tougher.
