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.

Hoody's Hanger Blue

With many years of intense searching for these anadromous business partners, I have found tying my skaters on a 60° hook has had the most success. The fly skates, pops and gurgles, making it hard for fish to resist. The Hanger is easy to cast and will pop well due to the tail end of the fly being weighed down by the hook. This keeps the legs down and the foam up for that iconic pop. Greatest of all are most of the fish hooked on the 60° jig hook are landed. Black and blue for those early morning dawn patrols and over cast days, orange for bright fish, and white for that 12 O’clock lunch fish when everyone’s taking a nap.
