Rod Setup For The Deschutes

Headed to the D, been a while since I've throne. Using a Winston boron IIx, thinking about a Scandi compact 34' ft 480gr, 9' ft tapered leader. change over to 24' ft 510gr skagit with 10' ft sink tip T7 - T11. Any thoughts would be very helpful.

Sounds like you should be pretty well covered for both dryline and subsurface fishing. With those grain windows I assume you're throwing the 7wt Biix. I typically carry both a 12'6"ish 6wt and 13'ish 7wt. I fish the 6wt until the winds pick up or I want to switch to a tip. Good luck.

Deschutes is running about 4800 cfs now with good visibility. I would stick with the floating line early and late and all day if it is cloudy. The water temp is around 53 or 54 degrees so they should still be hitting surface flies. There haven't been a lot of fish this year but the size has been really good. Your tackle sounds fine.

For the Scandi, I'd go longer than 9'. I use a 14' poly with 4' extra of tippet. Works great.
