Deschutes River Steelhead Flies

The Deschutes River in central Oregon is a major tributary of the Columbia River. The river provides much of the drainage on the eastern side of the Cascade Range in Oregon, gathering many of the tributaries that descend from the drier, eastern flank of the mountains. The Deschutes River is almost home to great summer and fall Steelhead Fly Fishing. From Maupin Oregon to the mouth of the Deschutes at the Columbia River. Steelhead Fly Fishing really heats up when the river starts cooling down in late August first week of September. When the Deschutes River is cooler than the Columbia River, the fish come into the Deschutes.

Fall Muddler

Fall Muddler custom tie by Grabflies.

A very good summer/fall Steelhead Muddler Minnow pattern. Design for rivers like the Klickitat and Deschutes... This muddler is tied on a shank with a trailing #2 Owner hook.

Tied with a rabbit wing.

Fly is 1.5 to 2 inches longer. Fishes very high in the water column on a dryline. This muddler has lots of action.

Works great summer into fall for Steelhead.

The Lady Caroline | first mentioned in George Kelson's "The Salmon Fly", 1895 |

The Classic Lady Caroline Fly is arguably one of the most recognizable Spey patterns; however unlike traditional Speys, the Lady C is tied with a tail. Tied by (most likely) Geordie Shanks, who was head ghillie at the Gordon Castle (as mentioned in A. E. Knox's Autumns on the Spey). The fly was named after Caroline Elizabeth Gordon Lennox (1844-1934) who was daughter of the Duke of Richmond and Gordon at Gordon Castle.

    Improved Summer Methow Moal

    AKA: Two Toned Flash Moal Leech, Blue/Chartreuse

    Moal leeches are tied entirely on a string with a trailer hook at the back. This gives the fly greater action than a fly tied on a rigid hook. More fish are landed with the Moal fly as well.

    The combination of rabbit fur which has incredible life in the water and flashabou creates an illuminated attraction for fish. A real winner!

    Two Toned Flash Moal Leech - Flashabou and rabbit wrapped around a string go together. Moal Leeches have great movement in the water. They wiggle and undulate, which moves the flashabou in wave like motion reflecting colorful light waves as the fly swings across the river. Two Toned (color) Flash Moals have two different colors of flashabou tied in. The tail color is tied in after half the fly is wrapped with rabbit. The head flashabou is tied with a length of 2/3's the fly length. This works much better that two colors of flashabou tied in together at the cone.

    Steel Plow, Black/Chartreuse

    Steel Plow, Black/Chartreuse

    Hooking a steelhead on a skated fly is one of the most rewarding experiences in fly fishing.  As we sought out to develop a “top-shelf” steelhead skater we turned to an unlikely source for inspiration - blacksmith John Deere’s original walking steel plow.  Our #4 short-shanked hook acts as a rudder and helps keep the fly in the surface tension even during violent grabs, while the plow handles act as outriggers, giving the fly balance and the simulation of wings. The flash and hackles catch water and light to give indication of movement and life and an orange sighter helps you track this fly across the early morning slicks.
