The water was rising but still fishable, we had several grabs and landed this HOT Wild steelhead.
This wild fish took about middle of the swing then took off about 100 yds down river and stayed that
far away for most of the fight.
It was a epic battle and fish!

Today I was out guiding on the Deschutes for some late season steelhead fishing.
We hooked 4 and landed 3 fish all on Type #6 sink tips and a Black and Blue Tandem Tube.

The last few weeks have been good when White River has been clean, The steelhead are spread out through the 100 miles of the Deschutes.
The best flies have been darker more natural patterns, My favorite are a Night Dancer or a Doc Spratley but don't forget there are alot of Fall Caddis around and steelhead also love them.
Fishing should stay good through Oct and first of Nov with some big Wild Steelhead showing up this year.

Fishing this last week was a little slower with all the rain and the river rising and also throw in White river putting in some mud.
With no rain in the forecast everything should settle back down and fishing should improve with clear water.
The best flies have been a Silvey's Sno-Cone Purple and Pink or Marty Sheppard's Redneck Revenge.

This last week on the Deschutes was interesting with good fishing and all the fires in Wasco County and on the Deschutes.
I just got off the river on Thursday late afternoon and was heading home, when my cell phone rang. There was a fire near my house heading my way, By the time I got home the whole area was on fire. We were lucky the wind kept the fire away from my house.
Most of my 160 acres was burnt except for around my house, so for the last few days we have been putting out small fires on my property.
I want to say thanks to the local Volunteer Fire Dept and a few Great neighbors that came to help us.
Hopefully things will settle down now and I can get back to just guiding.
