Portland's closest Blue Ribbon Trout fishery is the Deschutes River. Flowing from Pelton Dam downstream to it's junction with the Columbia, The Deschutes river offers a myriad of fly fishing opportunity for our legendary rainbow trout. Known locally as "redsides" this strain of trout are feisty and almost always football shaped in appearance. These little rockets really know how to use the Deschutes' brawling current to their advantage! Come enjoy the Wild and Scenic Deschutes River.
Overnight trips on the Deschutes often start at either the town of Warm Springs or the BLM capground at Trout Creek and finish just upstream from the town of Maupin, OR. This section of river that has the stunning salmonfly hatch in May and June every year, but hatches range throughout the Oregon Trout season. PMD, Green Drakes, Pink Albert's, BWO's, and PED's allow for consistent action and combined with the Dechutes' status as a venerable caddis factory, very few hours go by without a hatch.
Our fishing is done by floating in a driftboat or raft. By Oregon law, the boat is used as a taxi as fishing from the boat is "prohibited." Anglers use the boat to get around and wade the river to catch their quarry. Packed in the boat for the day are table and chairs, lunch, beverages, and fishing equipment. All equipment is provided at no additional charge. Our vehical and trailer is shuttled to meet us at the take out. An additonal "gear boat" is sent ahead of you to secure a camp site on prime fishing water and allow us to roll into camp with ease. Expect to find appetizers and cold drinks upon arrival. Dinner won't be far behind and allows you to recharge for the evening hatch.
Overnight Fly Fishing camp trips can be run as for as few as 2 days or as long a week.
Family and corporate trips can be arranged and are welcome as well. Please inquire at 503-799-1498 or email@example.com for private classes or group rates. We have years of experience putting on these trips!
