Salmon Fly Hatch in full swing

Adult Salmon flies as well as Golden Stones are spread throughout the lower Deschutes. Despite cold weather fishing was very good this weekend. We spoke to several outfitters leading three day trips from Warm Springs ramp to Maupin. The overall report was that dry fly fishing was very good. Clark Stones, Giant Foam Stones in Golden and Salmon, Terranasty’s, Norm Woods and other adult stonefly patterns were effective. The flows out of Pelton Dam were good and actually came down a bit with the cooler temperatures this week. The dry fly activity was not limited to Salmon Flies and Golden Stones, Pale Morning Duns and Blue Winged Olives had fish looking up this weekend as well. It is hard to beat watching a nice wild trout rise to a giant stonefly dry in a size #6. The good dry fly fishing will continue for the upcoming couple of weeks.
