    Bend Oregon Late August

    Knock, knock. Anybody home here ???

    Going to visit my son in Bend late August.
    Can anybody suggest what might be good then.
    Not a steelhead angler so looking more towards
    Middle Deschutes and upstream from there.

    Many thanks

    I never get that close to the Metolius without fishing it.

    by your post I'm not sure how familiar you are with the area.

    Not familiar at all.

    Noticed photos on some of the fly shop websites
    that the Middle to Upper Deschutes might be our skill level. Fall River
    and Crooked River in tailwater area might also be a target although it
    might be too warm in that neighborhood. The Horn is the only big
    water we've fished at home, otherwise it's small freestones and
    small streams in Yellowstone.

    Find Steelhead Falls in the Middle Deschutes and try that area.

    And you have to go visit the Metolius and fish it. It is so very unique in it's geology every fly fisher should check it out. I like walking from Canyon Creek to the Hatchery but almost any section is worthwhile. Go to The Fly Fisher's Place in Sisters for directions and suggestions.
