Deschutes River - Lower - November 11th, 2006

Steelhead:  Steelhead fishing had slowed last week with the spike in river levels but is picking back up on the Lower Deschutes right now. Above average numbers are now present from Warm Springs all the way to the mouth. The best fishing has been from Warm Springs to Maupin, with fish being caught throughout the system. We are seeing the bigger two-salt fish in the mix! Traditional swinging techniques as well as nymphing have been productive.  We are still finding fish on the floating line, but sink-tips are starting to become more productive as the water cools down. Remember that you can cover much more water with the swing, and with the fish being active and the water temps near perfect, this can mean more fish.  We have had the colder weather turn mild this week which has helped a lot. Overnight lows are starting to drop again and water temps are around 48-50 degrees on the upper part of the river. We are  looking at a lot of cloudy days this next week which always helps. Tie on a big fly and swing away.


Trout: Trout fishing is now closed on the Deschutes where it borders the reservation but is open year round below Two Springs Ranch. Fishing has been very good the last few weeks with the cooler fall weather and more cloudy days. Good PMD, PED,BWO,and October Caddis hatches have kept the fish looking up. The evenings are still producing good dry fly fishing, and the eddies still have trout looking up. Nymphing has been good as well with the fish on their fall feeding binge, and the possibility of an incidental steelhead.  

Dries: Salmonfly Dries, Golden Stone Dries, Caddis Dries (X-Caddis, Spent Caddis, Elk hair Caddis sz. 14-18), Parachute Adams sz. 14-18, PMD Parachute, Para-Emerging PMD, Silvey's Dead Caddis, Spent Partridge Caddis

Emergers: Spotlight Emerger 16-20, CDC Emerger 16-20, Soft Hackles 14-18

Hot Tip: If there are lots of leaves in the river, got to a fly with more flash to get the fish to notice it.

Metolius River - November 11th, 2006
RECORDED:    38 °    FISHING: Good
Sign up on the email list at www.theriffleflyshop.com and get these reports sent to you each week.


 Trout  The Metolius is fishing well right now for the Big Bull Trout. The river jumped up a lot last week with all the rain, and is now back to normal flows. This seems to have stirred up the Bulls! Sight fishing with big streamers or nymphing with a combo of big and ugly, and small and subtle is the ticket. Toss your flie(s) in and watch for a reaction. Trout fishing has also been fair on top and good sub-surface. We are also seeing BWO's and midges hatching regularly and becoming much more important to the fish.   The bows are being taken on an array of nymphs from very small midge pupa to larger golden stone nymphs. Look for a good BWO hatch on days with cloudcover. Water Temps are always fairly consistent and cold on this spring fed river. 

Dries:  BWO's 16-20, PMD's 14-16, Angel Case BWO's 18-20, CDC PMD's 16-18, Griffith's Gnat 18-22, Elk Hair Caddis (black) 14-16, X-Caddis 18-20, Spotlight Emerger 16-20, BWO Cripple 18-20

Trout
   Fishing on the Crooked has dropped off as the flows have been cut below 50cfs. Scuds and midge patterns are the go-to choice for many Crooked River regulars, and BWO hatches are becoming stronger and more consistent as the weather turns. Small egg patterns are also starting to produce. The fish seem to be spread back out as cooler temps are coming on.

Fall River - November 11th, 2006
RECORDED:    39 °    FISHING: Good
 Sign up on the email list at www.theriffleflyshop.com get these reports sent to you each week! 


Trout 
Fishing on the Fall River has been very good as of late. BWO's and Midges are the primary food sources for these Rainbows as the weather cools off. Dress for the weather and this river will provide good action all winter long.  The action will be best during the warmest part of the day, and especially on cloudy or rainy days. Nymphing small BWO and midge patterns on fine tippet is almost always effective here. In this river if you are not seeing fish, keep moving. Some stretches hold very few fish, while others hold much better numbers.

Dries:  Midges 18-22, BWO's 18-22's, Griffith's Gnat 18-22, Adams Parachute 16-22
Nymphs: Flashback Pheasant Tails 16-20's, Copper John's (red,black,green,standard) 16-20, Disco Midge 18-22, Miracle Midge 20, Disco Midge 18-22, Serendipities (olive/black) 16-20

Emergers: Spotlight Emerger 16-20, BWO Cripple 18-20, Midge Emergers 18-22




Hot Tip: This river fishes great all winter long. 


Remember the The Riffle Fly Shop! is now open in Bend at 9:00 am daily!

Deschutes River - Middle - November 11th, 2006
RECORDED:    56 °    FISHING: Fair
Sign up on the email list at www.theriffleflyshop.com and get these reports sent to you each week.


Trout
   Fishing on the Middle Deschutes is in post-irrigation mode with flows rising and falling with demand, but the fishing can still be quite good if your timing is right. We are seeing quite a few BWO's on cloudy days, and midges are starting to be more evident as well. This is also en excellent time to fish big streamers for the brown trout. Make sure to watch the river flows as things change at the close of irrigation season.
 
Dries:  BWO's 18-20, Parachute Adams 16-20, Griffith's Gnats 16-22, Para Midge 18-22, PMD Emergers and parachutes 14-16 
Nymphs:  Copper John’s (red,green,blk,std) 14-20, Flashback Pheasant Tails 14-20, Prince’s 14-18, Serendipity’s 16-20, Brassies 18-22, Zebra Midge 18-22, Hare's Ears 12-18 
Emergers/Pupa:  Midge Pupa 18-22, BWO floating nymphs 18-20, RS2 16-20, Spotlight Emerger 16-20, BWO Cripple 18-20


Hot Tip: The Browns are feeding heavily prior to the coming winter.

Trout 
Fishing on the Fall River has been very good as of late. BWO's and Midges are the primary food sources for these Rainbows as the weather cools off, and we see less of the larger caddis and mayflies. The action will be best during the warmest part of the day, and especially on cloudy or rainy days.
