Stoneflies on the Deschutes R. (Oregon)…

My son, Tony Muncy of Muncy Designs and I ventured over for the day on the beautiful Deschutes R. in Central Oregon. Word ways the Stoneflies were ’emerging’ onto the shoreline vegetation. So we thought we would see if the Redside trout were at all connecting with the adult Stones or nymphs. We centered upon the river North of Maupin, Oregon and some 15 miles downriver we found plenty of Stonefly nymphs crawling out onto shoreline grasses. The adults were emerging from the nymph’s and fluttering into the trees. We fished nymphs hard with only a few bumps. As the shadows finally fell upon the river, the expectations were adult Stonefly patterns would yield splashy takes. Alas, the trout karma didn’t align with the bug karma. A few fish, tons of bugs, glorious scenery and weather. The hatch is evolving toward some amazing times for some fly fishers in the days ahead as the ‘hatch’ progresses up river and the trout and bug karmas align.
