Salmon Fly Hatch Lower Deschutes
May 19, 2013
I floated the ever popular Warm Springs to Trout Creek section of the Deschutes yesterday hoping to hit the salmonfly hatch. The bugs were all over the bushes the fish just didn't seem totally keyed on them, with most of our fish being caught in tough to reach spots or quite a ways off the bank. We fished golden stone patters in size 8 through 12 and did fairly well, with the Clarks Stone and the Rogue Stone producing the most hits.
