Sorry about the lack of posts but we here at AWA have been busy. Deschutes trout season is in full swing and the salmon fly hatch is getting deep into the second half. With yellow sallies and caddis starting to take over feeding patterns from shears down. From Maupin up Norm woods and Clark’s stones have been the best fishing patterns going, paired with droppers  like Batman, crown jewel green drake, Christmas prince, or guides choice hares ear. Dropper sizes should be in the 14-16 size except the drake which is a 10 or 12. The Redsides have been scattered through out all types of water, so search everywhere!!!!

 

There are no trout like Deschutes Redsides!! Look at those spots.

The Sandy River Spey Clave has come and gone, was a great event!!! Saturday was unreal busy and things were a touch slow on Sunday but that happens. The free casting class on Friday was a huge success and for those who  missed it, don’t next year.

Now it is pretty evident we need to have some type of winter or we could be in some real trouble as for our water situation.  The winter steelhead the past couple of weeks has been slow, we are finding fish here and there. Making something difficult, even harder. with the days we have been having I have started chasing a few redsides around on the Deschutes. Finding those to be doing fairly well.

The weather forecast has all been lies, so I will believe the rain when it touches my gore-tex. Keep the faith and remember… tough to get them from the couch!!! If you feel in the mood to get a jump of the trout season shoot me an email. Tight lines!!

Good casts cover the water better!!
