Finally… The Water is Clear.

Well the Deschutes is finally fish able from top to bottom. Took a while with the land slide and White river change in damn release…. What else can they do? I have been out lately and there are some happy fish in the river. Not very many but happy. I have been using light sink tips or even super fast poly leaders. flies have been small and a little flashy but not over the top you know. Keep away from runs with salmon in them. You wont get any steelhead and they should be left alone. Late in the year for them any way. they will all be gone in 2 weeks anyway.

Still some bright fish around!
One of the biggest fish I have seen lately!

Here are some photos of a few nice ones from the few weeks. Enjoy!!

I would catch this fish anyday!!! Into the backing and 6 jumps!!

Was a bit stunned to see this guy out. He must be cold.
He will never forget his fist west coast Steelhead.
The fly color should be an indicator.
Bright fish!
More pink.
