Silvey's Flyfishing

Silvey's Flyfishing

Saturday, July 17, 2010


July on the Deschutes can be a great time of year, with both trout and steelhead to chase.
The last few trips have been camp trips from Mack's Canyon to Heritage Landing fishing for trout and steelhead.
There are a few steelhead around but with the warmer weather the water temps are rising and making it tougher to catch them.
There has been some great dry fly fishing in the evening with all the caddis hatches.
My best comb for trout have been a #16 Tan Body Elk Hair Caddis with a #16 Silvey's Bead head Caddis Pupa Dropper.
The Weather is key this time of year, if the temps are in the 80's or lower the fishing is good.
If we get temps in the mid 90's or higher fishing becomes tough in the Lower Deschutes with the warm water.
