Another beautiful day in Central Oregon on the Deschutes River.  I had the privilege to float the lower section from Warm Springs to Trout Creek with some of the crew from Fly & Field Outfitters here in Bend, Oregon.   Scott, Kevin and his dad Bob and myself all had a blast, and toughly enjoined every moment from put-in to take-out.  I'm sure if we were skunked we still would have had an epic day viewing the high desert beauty, but that wasn't the case.  The caddis were in full effect, swarming everywhere!  There were a ton of hoppers too, but I don't think we even had time to even throw any type of hopper profile on the water as the caddis were sufficient, perhaps next time through.  Scott and Kevin were amazing at spotting the hugest fish I've seen in a while, they even talked them into accepting their presentations.

For fishing conditions in the Central Oregon area check out the report on Fly and Field Outfitter's site, or their blog Fish the Deschutes for the local 411, or just stop into their store, and gear up!
