Early in the season when the water is high, the fish are scattered throughout the reservoir. However, a popular spot, especially for jigging, is at the confluence of the Deschutes and Davis arms. If it is your first time on the water, simply look for the congregation of boats on anchor.
Be sure to check the Fishing Regulations and Emergency Rules for this area.

There's nothing better than community based reports from people that are on the water! If you're seeing reports from local fly shops and guides please take some time to visit their shops or websites!
