Desert Dries – Steelhead Fly Fishing by Todd Moen

In this video, angler Jeff Hickman uses his jet boat to access the roadless Lower Deschutes River with his guide and friend Barrett Ames. These desert steelhead, most of them just straying out of the mighty Columbia River, are very tuned into the surface and will aggressively rise to a skated dry fly.

  1. That surface skater-inspecting otter – fantastic shot. Proper fishing too, with some very fine, human fishers and caster featured. Ticks all boxes for me. Thanks.
