The Lower Deschutes River: Epic in Every Way
It's difficult to articulate everything that can and might possibly happen on your Deschutes Day Trip in a few brief paragraphs, but first thing's first; You do not need to be an expert angler to have a great day with a Lower Deschutes River fly fishing guide! We’ve hosted thousands of people down there who’ve never even held a fly rod. And you don’t need to own fly fishing equipment. We supply everything. You just show up with a smile and willingness to learn. For us, getting a client who’s never fly fished into their first trout on the Lower D is a major rush and one of our favorite things.
Your experience with one of our local guides will be an all-day adventure. Throughout the day you’ll drift nearly ten miles, stopping along the way to fish and eat lunch. During the summer months, we offer either an early on/early off or mid-day till dark schedule. What’s important to understand is that every part of the day will be taken care of. From getting you rigged up and putting you on the most productive waters, to working on presentations, and making sure every aspect of your technique is optimized. We will shop for and prepare your food, arrange shuttles, and get you back to your car at the end of the day. All you have to do be ready for an epic experience - because the Deschutes River canyon is epic in every way!

Your Turn To Live the Experience
Once you’ve booked a guided fly fishing trip on the Lower Deschutes River, we will schedule a time for you to stop by the shop and get geared up for the day. For some, that simply means getting a boater’s pass and a few flies. For others, we will fit you in waders and boots, get you your license, Tribal permits and anything else you might need. We’ll arrange a meeting place and time for you and your guide. The day of the trip you will meet your guide and all ride together to the boat ramp. Once on the river, the canyon envelops you and the day becomes one you’ll never forget. We stop along the way to get out and fish and depending on the day, we’ll target riffles, pools, banks with overhanging foliage, and runs; wherever we think the fish are most actively feeding. We can nymph fish under indicators, use dries along the bank, swing, and strip articulated sculpin patterns. Fly fishing the Lower Deschutes River here in Central Oregon is a dynamic and multi-faceted experience and we can't wait for you to join us.
