Skwala Stoneflies on the lower Deschutes

Fall River, the Crooked River, Metolius and Lower Deschutes are all in good condition for fly fishing. You’ll find blue wing olives on the Metolius from 12-3pm in the afternoon. Now is the time to be there for bull trout with 3 to 4-inch rabbit fur streamers — whitefish patterns.

Anglers on the West side shouldn’t have trouble coming over the pass, but you may see some packed snow near the Metolius. Anglers on the Lower Deschutes are seeing black stones in size 12-14 for surface action. Look for access around Terrebonne and Lower Bridge Rd.

The Crooked River is running clear and it has blue wing olives and lots of fish. Scuds, Prince nymphs and Pheasant tails should produce subsurface action.
