I picked up 8 or 9 fish tonight in Bend. I have a deep run that I like to fish near the hotel where I stay. Two years ago I caught a 7lb brown on a size 14 hares ear. Tonight the hares ear was popular again but I had to get it deep so I put on a big weighted stone fly. Both flies worked but the smaller fly got more fish. The biggest fish were whitefish again but I ended up with 5 trout too. At one point I broke off the hares ear so I put on a bhpt and got two quick strikes. The second was something big that I couldn't get off the bottom but it slipped off pretty quick. Pretty much any nymph in the size 12-16 is working. Sorry no pics...again but I'll get some before the week is up.
