Central Oregon Fishing Reports – Glenn Zinkus

Weather Outlook Across Central and Eastern Oregon:
After the latest cold front that is currently blowing through today, the weather begins to warm up across the Cascades, the high desert, and the far reaches of Eastern Oregon. We will see summer-like temperatures next week. Temperatures through the high desert rise to the 70s and 80s over the weekend, and 90s next week. The Cascade lakes rise to the 60s on Friday, 70s on Saturday/Sunday and 80s next week. The Deschutes will get hot, well into the 90s by next week. The high country of northeast Oregon will warm from the 60s through the weekend, and 70s and 80s next week.

Winds across the region will moderate after today and Friday.

Lower Deschutes River: Salmon flies, and stoneflies in general have been much of the focus and cause of excitement. Green drakes have been coming off, and there have been PMDs and caddis in the mix.

The Guides Forecast – Middle Deschutes River: Nymph with Perdigons (brighter ones in orange), Micro Mayflies and Copper Johns when the hatches are not coming off. Hatches coming off include caddis, pale morning duns, and pale evening duns.

Spinners and spoons remain to be good according to the Sportsman’s Warehouse in Bend.

Upper Deschutes River: The upper Deschutes is now open. I’ve always done well nymphing PTs in and around the log jams and pools during the first several weeks within opening.

Haystack Reservoir: The reservoir shows as 100% full and remains a good fishing location. With the longer days and warmer temperatures, bass and warmwater species will start to get active. For this early warmwater season, use stripped leeches for fly fishers and crankbaits for conventional gear anglers for bass.

However, I have no recent reports from anglers for this location.

Lake Billy Chinook: Reports are that kokanee are scattered through the lake, but diligently studying a fish finder and searching by trolling will get anglers to the fish.

Crooked River: While there are hatches of caddis and PMDs, nymphing is the most effective way to fish the Crooked right now. Sparkle Pupas, Puparazzi and Micro Mayflies, Zebra midges and Split Case nymphs are taking fish.
