Seasoned fly fishermen love the size of the Deschutes River and the size of the fish! There’s no theme park here, no little stream, no live bait/spinners, and no stocked trout! Just hard-fighting, fun-to-fish wild native rainbow trout and steelhead.
New to the sport? No problem! We’ll provide plenty of easy to understand instruction on how to cast, fly selection, presentation for the most success, how to fight a hard-fighting native fish, how to land one, and most importantly, how to release it unharmed for another day.
For experienced fishermen – this will challenge you to become the complete fisherman, as no river challenges your skills like the Deschutes, and no river in America can show you a bigger variety of insect hatches, food sources and life cycle (sometimes at the same time).
