I have been able to get out a three times in the last week and the BWO hatches have been insane. The other day all you could see were little critters all over the snow on the side of the river by the hundreds. Sunday fished with pops and when the hatch was going on you could hook afish almost everyother cast with a little trasiler nymph. So I went out today adn arrived around noon just as the hatch was getting going and hooked a fish on the second cast. Saw some risers down below me went down there and put the smack down on two nice wild redsides bows. Ended up hookinhg nuthing but a ton of whiteys but when you are hoooking 14" whiteys on 3 wt makes for a good afternnon. Got one pic in before the camera took a ****. Hopefully it dries and and still works. Am going back tommorow to walk some new sections of river and enjoy some time off before the chaos starts up next week. So the hatches are suppose to get better as the month goes on. So if you are looking for action the Deschuttes will be giving up many many redsides to nymphs and top water from aroung 11-1 pretty much everyday.

Thanks for the report! Man I REALLY need that car... Sounds like a ton of fun. I gotta make it over there sometime. I might possibly be taking a trip to the McKenzie this weekend and my fly fishing instructor said we will possibly see some BWOs hatching. Otherwise just going to nymph fish. :D

Went out today to the Crooked and had a banner day bringing a couple doz whiteys and 8 trout to hand. The biggest whitey went 18" and that big of a fish on a 3 wt was ablsolute bliss. I also helped two guys a father and his son in law get into a few. The dad had a 8 wt I told him that was for bass,salmon and steelhead not trout and whitey on a very small river I hooked up and gave him my rod and let him bring in a 12"er he was shocked at the weight of a 7"6" 3 wt compared to his old war pig. Caught todays fish on a few different BWO nymphs and then a little yellow stone fly size 16. March Browns should start hatching so it is only going to get better and then it will be Bass time.
