SUMMER STEELHEAD

The last couple of seasons we have caught a summer steelhead on the Sandy river the first week of March. This year with the low water the fish are running a little later then normal.
This last week we finally landed a summer steelhead, they usually aren't the biggest fish but man are they HOT!!!

FLY TYING EXPO

This is a great event for anyone that is interested in tying flies.
I will be there on Saturday tying my new Steelhead Squid and Prawn flies

CRAZY WEATHER


The last few weeks has been some crazy weather.
Out fishing last week in 60 degree weather.
Yesterday morning it snowed hard for about 20 minutes.
I guess its Spring in Oregon if you don't like the weather just wait a few minutes it will change.


With all the crazy weather we did manage to hook and land this chrome Wild Hen on a Red Tandem Tube Fly.

MARCH TROUT FISHING

With the mild weather this week and overcast days it is perfect weather for some dryfly action on the Deschutes River. The Blue wing olive hatch starts around noon to 1:00 pm and ends about 3:00pm.
My best combination to use during the hatch is a parachute Blue Winged Olive in size #16 or 18
with a Baetis Emerger dropper size #18 fished just below the surface.



The Hatch will get better through March and also change to bigger Mayflies like March Browns.
