Fishing Adventures

Deschutes Steelhead

This trip is discontinued until further notice.

Multiple offerings for this adventure. These trips are offered in one and multiple day fishing adventures, fishing for the Deschutes Summer Steelhead (nicked named “freight trains”). On our overnight trips we set a base camp approximately 9 miles upriver. From this camp we can move up stream or down to fish, depending on where the fish are concentrated.

Deschutes steelhead are well known for being good fly biters. For our fly fishers we start our day early, taking advantage of the morning shade. We lure fish or resting in the mid-day, then return to the river in the late afternoon. We will fish the afternoon shade right up till dark. We fish the greased line technique, casting downstream at a 45-degree angle mend up stream, hang on and let the fly swing into shore. In my opinion there is nothing like catching one of these spectacular fish on a fly.

If you’re not a fly fisherman don’t worry, these fish are readily taken on lures and plugs all day long. We use a variety of different spinners, spoons, and diving plugs. You will find our camps quite comfortable, usually nestled in the trees for mid-day shade. We provide nice lounge chairs, sleeping cots in our large spacious tents, warm water for your evening shower. A dining area and plenty of ice to keep your refreshments cold.

We offer these trips the entire month of August and the third week of September.
