Next week begins the first day of Fall 09. The fall is one of the best times of the year for Oregon fly anglers. The Deschutes is hot with steelhead, the Cascade lakes are producing as water and air temps cool. October Caddis are beginning to fly around streams. The Mckenzie native Redsides begin to increase in numbers as the water temps cool and the river level begins to rise slightly.
Meanwhile, on the coastal streams, Alsea, Siletz, and Siuslaw; the sea run cuts are entering the tidewater areas. Sea runs fall prey to the Borden Special and Spruce patterns. The sea run angler awaits the passage of summer days for those foggy and wet early days of fall. “Tis the Fall Season”. Get out there!
