Salmon Fly hatch on the Reservation side of the D

Last Friday I finally got to head out to the Deschutes and fish the Res. The trip had been canceled twice due to weather and the chief not allowing “the man” on the reservation due to some legal fiasco.

The day was perfect. 85 degrees with a light breeze and pleanty of sun to get the bugs going. There were four of us on the trip and none of us caught any thing samller than 16 inches. One of the guys caught an absolute pig. The bugs of choice (which you’ll see in the fish’s grills) were the Mac Salmon, The Norm Woods, The Rogue Foam and the Clark Stone. All of these in size 2 and 4. Violent strikes on large dy flies…nothing better.

At one point toward the end of the day we looked up to see a blanket of salmon flies screening out the sun. It was awesome.

Here’s some of the photos.
