Deschutes River, Oregon - Fishing Report - August 12, 2017
The upper deschutes is running a little higher than normal, with is a good thing. Trout are
being caught be our customers in the middle and upper sections. There are still enough
hatches taking place to make for good dry fly action. The lower river is turning out a few
fish, we understand. It should get much better very soon.
