Spring is here and and the Salmon flies are soon to follow. Opening day is April 26th and the early season nymphing can be some of the best of the year.
This is the time to plan your trout and steelhead action on the Deschutes. If we can help plan a trip and shake the cabin fever and winter time blues, feel free to contact us

Welcome to Central Oregon, the high desert, and the home of the fabled Deschutes River meandering its way from high in the Deschutes National Forest, over 100 miles, to the Columbia River. It is here where we have spent good portions of our lives getting to know the finned creatures that inhabit these waters. We invite you to join us on the Deschutes River guided fly fishing trip of a lifetime and create memories of scenic beauty in a rugged, yet catered adventure, all while bending your fly rod.
