Well, this is a good time of year on the Deschutes.  TROUT fishing starts to taper off a bit in November and December but targeting redsides is worth the effort.   Nymphing for trout with a 6 wt is a good idea because you may hook a Steelie and having a little extra "wood" to lay on 'em helps.  Keep an eye out for Fall hatches. 

STEELHEAD are viable from the Mouth all the way up to the dam.  Don't let the weather stop you from gettin out there!!  Expect water levels to be higher than normal for the rest of the season. 

Please be aware of spawnig beds... it may be tempting to wade out to redds that have fish spawning -- BUT if you want the Deschutes to continue being a blue ribbon trout stream AND great steelhead fishery, respect the beautiful Steelies, trout, and precious few Chinook. We all want our great-grandkids to enjoy this river, don't we?
