Central Oregon Fishing Reports – Contributor Glenn Zinkus reports:

Lower Deschutes Redside Fishing Reports
Lower Deschutes Redside Fishing Reports
Lower Deschutes River:

Water temperatures are starting to drop with the more moderate temperatures of the last several days, and releases from the dam are now consistent from 53.5 to 55.5 degrees over the past week.

There are great trout fishing reports from Warm Springs to Trout Creek. Every angler and shop I know have been reporting good fishing. Dry-dropper combos with caddis and craneflies are hot.

Middle Deschutes River: No current reports.

Upper Deschutes River: The upper Deschutes has been fishing well. PMDs, Yellow Sallies and some caddis are present. Brook trout are being caught on Perdigons, Frenchies, Jig Style PTs.

Josh Pardee at Tim’s Fishin Tackle Shop reports hot fishing for brown trout, with #9,#11 and #13 silver Rapalas being the hot lures.

Haystack Reservoir: Fill level is 31 %. Bass fishing is excellent. Haystack remains good for bass in August. Water temps are dropping.

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. Fishing up near the dams is best.

Metolius River: The spring-fed Metolius remains a solid summer angling option – one of the best because of the constant, cool water.

PMDs have been the main daytime hatch, and are all over the river. There are regular evening spinner falls. I still see golden stones on the upper river. Jeff Perin recommends Woods and Clarks Stones.
