Go Time

September is a magical time if you’re a steelheader in the Northwest. The sun is getting lower, the hot days are coming to an end, and the the nights are getting cool and crisp, all of which mean grabby Steelhead. The Deschutes will be at it’s prime all month long with the entire lower 100 miles fair game for hooking fish. Floating lines will still be very effective all month and September is always prime for skating fish up. If you have been waiting for the White to clear, the wait is over. Steelhead are deep in the Maupin area and we have had reports of fish hooked clear up to Trout Creek. This is go time. We only get a few months of prime time East side Steelheading and we’re in it now. 

Fall Salmon

We are seeing some decent numbers of Chinook hit the rivers now and with some more rain coming in, the numbers are about to sky rocket. Every fall the biggest Salmon in the PNW call our tribs home and we only get a short window to go after them. For the rest of the month into early October, you have a real shot at hooking a king on a fly. If you’re new at it and want to learn how to do it and where to go, swing by and we’ll give you the low down.
