September 23rd, 2010

Diamond Lake
Fly fishing continues to be awesome on Diamond Lake. Try blood rufus and minnow buggers in the morning and Jansen's callibaetis emerger  in the afternoons. 

East Lake
Many good reports about East! 
Callibaetis dries, CDC callibaetis emergers, AP emergers, & olive pine squirrel minnows. 

Hosmer Lake
Now that summer is over & the tourists and hot weather have left, it's a good idea to head to Hosmer before the snow falls and the road closes. Try scuds, white rufus, & buttonators.

Upper Deschutes
Plenty of large trout continue to be hooked and landed in the Upper D..
Try possie buggers, Mr. Peacocks, black pine squirrel minnows and some may fly & caddis.

Crooked River
Fly fishing on the Crooked has been stellar lately and will continue to improve with the fall weather. Look for caddis hatches in the afternoon. Try anato may's, rainbow warriors, FB pheasant tails & caddis emergers.

Fall River
The Fall has been fishing great as we move further into autumn. Lady Di's, small baetis, Mr. Peacocks and minnow buggers have been productive patterns.

Lady Di's have been slaying trout on this gorgeous spring creek.  Some BWO's are coming off in the afternoons. 

The Crooked continues to fish well and should improve with the cooler weather.  Caddis and baetis are hatching . Try a tungsten gray baetis, frenchies, and anato mays.

Reports have been great on Diamond as we move into autumn. Blood & orange rufus patterns are working in the mornings. Black AP emergers (size 10) have been catching fish in the afternoons when the baetis  are coming off the water.

Fishing has been off & on at Crane, but when it's's on.  Chironomids have been hooking up plenty of fish. Also caddis emergers, and blood rufus patterns. Try early in the day or later in the evening.
