Lower Deschutes River:

The river temperatures changed again, and this time not for the better of all of the salmonids in the river, as the temperature went up over the past week. This is not a total surprise as I was told that PGE dropped the temperatures last week because of some ongoing maintenance activity. Temperatures near the mouth are in the low 70s during the afternoons, much to warm for fishing for salmonids. Nearer to the dam the temperatures are 58 to 59 degrees.

Middle Deschutes River: The Grandview fire, thankfully, is under control and more of the Middle Deschutes is accessible.

Upper Deschutes River: The upper Deschutes has been fishing well, with nymphing being the primary method now.

Lake Billy Chinook: Reports of good kokanee fishing in both the Deschutes and Metolius arms. Jigging with gold and silver colors.

Crooked River: Crooked River is best fished now in the mornings only, if you must fish it.

Fall River: Spring fed Fall River continues to be one of the better trout refuges with towering ponderosas providing shade and constant, cool water. This is a popular summer weekend location. Jeff Perin at The Fly Fishers Place in Sisters reports some recent good dry fly fishing with good caddis and PMD hatches.

Hosmer: If fishing Hosmer, stay in the Upper Lake and channel. The lower lake will be too warm.

North and South Twin Lakes: Josh at Tim’s Fishin Tackle Shop in Lapine reports great fishing! North and South Twin have been recently stocked with trophy rainbows. Crane Prairie Reservoir: Bass fishing is still good, but slowed down from the red hot reports of recent weeks.

Wickiup Reservoir: Reports from Tim’s Fly Fishin Tackle shop are that Wickiup is slow for kokanee, but brown trout and rainbow trout fishing is good.

East Lake: Trout fishing is good from all reports from the fly shops and Tim’s in Lapine. Fishing from browns has been the standout.
