Anyone fished the Deschutes in the last couple of days? I'm looking to take the kids over for the day and play on the bank, probably near the mouth, and was curious if the steelhead are moving or if the water is too warm? Thanks for any info.
Fished for the first few hours today and saw three taken off of the island across from the launch and one taken by the bridge. It is still hit and miss as the numbers of fish have not reached the deschutes yet. Things can only get better over the next couple of months.
Well I can add to the above reports first hand now. Spent a few hours on the river from the launch on up past moody rapids - nothing, nada, zip. Saw at least six other fishermen in that same stretch and didn't see a fish hooked. Just means there are more for the next trip :grin:
