Deschutes tomorrow (Monday)

A window opened up, so I'm headed to the mouth of the D. tomorrow, fishing below rattlesnake to cable car on the west side. Grey Simms jacket, white beard. If you're in the area, give me a holler. Rain and overcast, says the weatherman.

Post a report. I am launching Wednesday morning for a 5 day trip. DA posted a report that the rain last night pushed some mud into the river but it is clearing quickly.

Good luck, gents.

Hope you find a pod of fish to get some adrenaline flowing. Even with the White River puking, it is often at least somewhat fishable at the mouth. As the duck hunters used to say (before steel): "When there's lead in the air, there's hope!"
A buddy is doing day trips from Macks most of this week. He may be up against the "concrete" river a few days. Back in the good old days, I was practicing my cast one afternoon when the river was pure concrete and hooked up about two feet from shore in six inches of water.

A quick report on yesterday's outing. Fished from 7:30 until 2:30 at the mouth. The water was only slightly cloudy from the White River. I'd say 85% normal visibility and seemed to clear as the morning wore on. Water levels are on the low side.

I fished all the productive runs I could in 7 hours, but didn't touch a fish. I saw gear guy below me get something on (steelhead or salmon) for about 15 seconds, and saw one bonked on the bank as I walked in. Otherwise I didin't see anything caught.

On the other hand, I got to spend some quality time skating my Screaming Banshee (Moose), and she floats like a cork. Good luck on your float, Mark.

That's a fine report, Lyle. Love that Banshee dance.

Thanks for the report. A week ago, we finished a four-day float from Mack’s Canyon to Heritage. Nothing the first two days, but I landed four steelhead on Saturday and Sunday. My brother-in-law landed one. We had several other good grabs. All were on floating lines and swung wet flies. It was a great trip and a bonus to land a few fish.
