Everything Fly Fishing

Summer Daze

Summer Daze

Caddis on the wing, hot weather, and trout in the shadows, it's summertime on the Deschutes River. The Salmonfly crowds are a distant memory, and the fly swingers are still weeks away; it's time for small dry flies and big fish. Josh Linn, "The Oracle," had fly patterns that needed field testing, so he pushed off from Warm Springs last weekend and filed this very timely report.
