Deschutes Steelhead

Headed up to the Deschutes next week to float the lower river for a few days. Anyone had any success or heard whether the fish have started to move into the river? Heard anecdotally that the Columbia is running cold and I assume that will stimulate fish to start moving into the D. - hopefully sooner rather than later.

None of the shops are showing reports of steelhead as yet. Everything is still all about the caddis hatch and redsides.

I've heard of a couple being caught inadvertently while nymphing for trout, not sure if landed though. Most target trout this time of year but I'm sure there are some early hot steelhead around but will likely be slow. I hooked and landed one last year on July 4th!
