Cascade Lakes - June 10th, 2012
supplied by: The Patient Angler
RECORDED:    53 °   FISHING: Fair



Sunday looked like it was going to be a pretty nice day so I hooked up the Boat and headed to Paulina Lake early in the morning. When I arrived at the boat ramp I found a steady 10mph breeze blowing across the lake. I decided to give it a shot anyway with the hopes that the wind would decrease later in the day. I started fishing out in front of the lodge using the wind to drift along the edge of the drop-off were the shallow water drops off to deeper water. I was casting, trolling and stripping in a small mini-leech pattern and managed to pick up a fish on every other pass.


            After a few smaller fish I decided to try a bigger zonker baitfish pattern on a type IV sink line to see if I could interest a little bigger fish. I worked the drop-off area a little deeper and with a little more aggressive retrieve for about an hour before I had my first grab.


I was in the process of stripping in my fly with half my line in the boat when what felt like the first big fish of the day latched onto my fly with a solid take. I set-up on the fish and he immediately started taking line in a hurry. As I watched line clear from the deck and fly through my rod guides, time seemed to slow down as I watched in slow motion a tangle of line leave the deck and head for my first stripping guide. With the realization of a catastrophe in the making, I frantically worked to free the tangle line from my guides before it was too late. It was too late! The pressure of the fleeing fish was too much and my leader snapped before I could clear my line.


I drove around the perimeter of the lake and fished a number of good looking spots, but never found anything bigger than 12 or 13 inches. It was a fun morning and a beautiful day on the water, but some much needed yard work at home had me heading back to town in the early afternoon.

 South Twin is fishing well. Although not big the fish are active and will take buggers and chironomids.

Summer weather is almost here.  It has been a very unseasonably cool Spring so far.  This has kept the water temperatures much cooler than normal for this time of year.

With the warming weather coming soon, the water should bump up in temperature and get the bug hatches going in earnest.  

Fishing has been great at the Lava lakes when the wind has not been howling over 20mphs.  Hosmer is just getting going now too.  Access has been open to East Lake for the past several weeks and the fish have been cooperating nicely.  Crane Prairie Reservoir has continued to amaze our clients daily with the size of her World Class Rainbow trout.  She is not an easy place to tackle but their are few places in North America that can match her quality of fish!!!  Please be sure to handle her fish carefully and release them properly so that we all can continue to enjoy her spectacular fishery for years to come...

Fishing small nymphs under an the indicator will prove to be the most productive method early season.  Larger fish are always willing to chase bait so bring a healthy selection of buggers and streamers as well...

RECORDED:    62 °   FISHING: Good
A good lake to try right now is North Twin. It is protected from the wind and is perfect along the edges for a tube or pontoon boat. No Motors allowed it is also good for a row boat or a drift boat.

The fish are hitting wooly buggers, chironomids, sheep creek specials and prince's. Don't expect too many fish over 15 inches here but on a good day you'll have good action.

Summer is more than half gone so be sure to enjoy the next month of summer fishing before its gone.

The callibaetis hatch at East has not been like years past but the fish are still eating the nymph.  To target the bigger Browns, get down to where they are in the 20-40ft range.  Dry fly fishing has not been as consistent this year with the limited hatch.

Crane is about BIG rainbows...period.  Don't let anyone ever tell you Crane is an easy fishery.  It is certainly anything but easy.  But don't ever let anyone tell you that Crane is a bad fishery.  It may be easy to confuse a tough fishery with a poor fishery but they are not the same.   Crane is simply one of the BEST stillwater fisheries in the nation at consistently producing rainbows in the 4-10lb class on a day to day basis.  We experience it everyday in the Summer.   If you don't care about what size fish you catch, Crane is the wrong place to fish...

Wickiup, Hosmer and Lava are all producing good fishing opportunities.  Davis continues to give the fly angling bass enthusiast a chance at quality bass fishing on the fly.

 Enjoy the next month or so because, believe it or not, Fall is rapidly approaching!!!

Great Fishing,

The weather is now hot and the fishing is too.  The difficult decisions lie in where to go fishing...

First, Choose what you want to target....Bass or Trout.

Second, Choose how you want to go after them.

 Answering those two questions will help one decide WHERE to go fishing.

Quick help guide:

For Bass on the fly, popper or sub surface, hit Davis.

For Trout on dries, Fish the Callibaetis Hatch at East or Hosmer or Fish the Upper Deschutes with any dry pattern.

For Kokanee on the fly, Hit East with Callibaetis nymphs or chironomids as well as Crane Prairie.

For ENORMOUS Rainbows,  Need you really ask???

Great Fishing!!!

  FISHING SEASON is in FULL swing right now.   Its simply a matter of choices, choices, choices...and that can pose a problem with limited fishing time.  Dry Fly entusiasts should focus on the Upper Deschutes, East and Hosmer.  Callibaetis are around in numbers.  Beware of the biting bugs on the Upper D stretch.  Wickiup and Paulinas Browns are always eager to engulf innocent bystanders.  Crane continues to be Crane, producing Rainbows the dimensions most never thought existed.  The Bass in Davis are willing slammers of flies raked across the surface.

This is Central Oregon Fishing...Get out there and enjoy it!!!!

The season is certainly underway!!!  The fishing is definitely improving as the weather cooperates and warms.  Midges, as well as some callibaetis, are keeping the Rainbows occupied with eating.  Scuds can also be a good choice in ones arsenal.  Browns are prowling shorelines looking for innocent unsuspecting finned appetizers to fill their dinner plates. Best days to be on the water will be those days the wind isn't creating white caps.  The fishing will continue to get better as we move into June.  Thank you Lord for allowing us to work smack dab in the middle of stillwater paradise.

Fall is Here!!!  Cold nights and Cool mornings are a reminder that Old man Winter is not far off.  When ice freezes the line in your guides, you know that it's a tad bit on the cool side.  Regardless, Fall fishing can be a beautiful time to experience Central Oregon.  The air is crisp, the leaves are full of color and the fish are looking for that last chance to grab a meal before winter sets in.  If you get the chance in the next few weeks, take some time to get out and experience Central Oregon's Magnificent Beauty!!!
