At Rogue River Outfitters we have had a number of people contact us about fishing the Deschutes this time of year and later into the fall. The question being “is the fishing any good this time of year”. In years past we have fall fished a half a dozen trips down the Deschutes, fishing for Steelhead and the over feed REDSIDE… This is a trip we have enjoyed doing and have found great success.
We opened a slot for a trip this year Oct 3-5th. We have not quite filled it, so if you have an interest give us call. We guarantee an experience you will not soon forget. :) If you’re going to go on your own here is a quick tip. The Steelhead hold in the riffles and the trout will feed from the foam line. Look for the hatch and float a very small bug, for the steelhead use weighted nymphs and indicator. Good Luck!
It is the deschutes so casting practice may be needed, correction it is the deschutes so casting practice is a must! Orvis had posted on their FB page a link to a casting video from “On the Fly Productions”. We were checking out the Video and thought you might enjoy.
