Silvey's Flyfishing

Silvey's Flyfishing

Saturday, August 27, 2011


Its been a while since my last post , steelhead season on the Deschutes is in full swing and have been guiding the last 3 weeks solid.
Fishing has been good when the weather is not to hot, on the hotter days the mornings have been best.
My best flies so far have been #6 Night Dancer, #6 Muddler, #4 Red Neck Revenge, The darker more natural patterns seem to be better right now.
We have also caught a few in the mid-day with sink-tips and a small Black and Blue Tandem Tube.
With some cooler weather fishing should get even better.

On Friday I decided to take my kids over to the John day for some fun and catch some bass. The river was still over 700cfs for Aug that is very high but still good to catch lots of bass.
The kids used Black Wolleybuggers all day and caught about 40 or 50 bass.
I was fishing poppers and Foam Bugs and catching a few.
If you have never fished the John Day its a great place for the family trip and even catch a few fish.

Well its been a while since I posted been busy guiding for Trout and Steelhead
The Trout fishing has been good with big Caddis hatches and Aquatic Moths
Steelhead are starting to show up in better numbers in the lower river but the water temps have been
a little warm to have great fishing yet.
So far we have hooked 5 steelhead trout fishing and 1 steelhead on the swing!
Out of the 5 on trout gear we only landed 1 but its tough to land them on 5x and size #16 caddis pupae.
With some cooler weather and water the steelhead fishing should get better
