Walleye in the Deschutes River

The hits just keep on coming.

Remarkably, there are now walleye in the lower Deschutes River. As far as anyone is aware, this has never happened before.

In addition to walleye, smallmouth bass continue to be been taken in good numbers in the lower river this summer, for the second straight year. Trout and steelhead, not so much.

The bass situation has gotten so bad that the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission recently voted to make the bass fishery in the lower Deschutes River a “no bag limit” fishery.
