We have just had an opening on the lower Deschutes River for August 2-4.

This is a 3 day / 2 night trip with the only fly fishing outfitter on the lower Deschutes that uses a jet boat. Using the jet boat ensures that you will fish more water during the productive hours of the day than any of the drift boat-based operations.

These dates (August 2-4) are prime time on the lower Deschutes for the early chrome torpedoes. Returns of fish in the Columbia system are huge this year and now is the time to get down there and be the first to hook one!

This report just came in from our friend Damon Scott, Ranch Manager at El Rancho Pinoso:

“The group had a great first day and we have officially converted the wives into fly fishing fools. They all fished all day and Mrs. Fay ended her day with a 19 inch bow that she worked 2 hours to get.”

Early reports are coming in from anglers returning from the Dean River. We are pleased to say that Dean River steelhead are entering the river in good numbers and anglers are hooking them. We just received this report from our friend Bruce Nakao:

“Here are some of the fish I landed on the Dean. Finally I did get to be on that trip where guides would say of it, “you should have been here last week” This was last week. Our group of 7 hooked 113 fish and landed 60, of which 41 were steelhead and 19 were chinook. I landed 12 of 20 vs. the last time I was at the Dean when I landed 3 out of 5. My 36+ inch steelhead was the biggest landed this week and 36 gets you into the book they keep like in TDF for 15 lb. fish. Kenny, you will be happy to hear that I hooked 4 fish in one run with your prototype fly; two salmon and two steelhead. The salmon and 32 inch hen in the photos were on your fly.”

Way to go Bruce!!

Cary Pugh just returned from fishing on Marco Island in Florida:

“A quick report. Fishing was affected by weather. Had to work for fish and didn’t have many good shots especially at tarpon. This redfish was probably the best quality. Will send a snook and tarpon photo next. Am ready for bolivia now though. This was an excellent warm up!”

Thanks Cary!

From Rodrigo Salles at Untamed Angling:

“Tsimane Lodge has reached almost mid season facing new challenges but wonderful rewards. Low water, no rain, and one of the biggest droughts of last years in the National Park. Our guides have worked really hard to find the secret of these waters during these very technical weeks. Now some good drops of rain fall on the top of our roof, but we really need the real thing here.”

“These days it is hard to get results, but impressive and hard to forget when reached. Tsimane waters can bring the most rewarding days of the entire season. When you don’t have the fish in your backyard you need to navigate more, walk, hike and sweat. As a unique gift, this hard work deserves the most beautiful frames and backgrounds of Tsimane.”

Thanks to Rodrigo Salles of Untamed Angling for this great report and photos!
