Conditions : DESCHUTES RIVER: Steelhead fishing has been decent in the lower 40 miles of the Deschutes. Passage has improved for steelhead at The Dalles Dam and counts have increased, which should bring more fish up the Deschutes.

Anglers are reminded that the section of the Deschutes River from the I-84 Bridge upstream to Moody Rapids (0.25 miles) is closed to all fishing. No changes to the permanent rules, as printed in the 2018 Sport Fishing Regulations, have been made upstream of Moody Rapids.

Anglers should be aware that a wildfire burned the lower 30 miles of the Deschutes Canyon. The fire burned most of the riparian corridor, traditional campsites and some out-houses. Access and fishing are not affected, but camping in this area will be difficult.

Lake Billy Chinook - Cooler weather should improve fishing. Open for trout all year. Fishing restricted to artificial flies and lures. No size or limits on brown trout and no harvest of bull trout.

Benham -Anglers report fair fishing for trout during the morning and evening. Fishing restricted to artificial flies and lures only.
