The Deschutes River is our home water. We’re on it more days than not; and every one of those days is special! Fly Fishing on the Deschutes River is easily one of the most iconic and dreamed about destinations in the world. Read on to find out what a Deschutes River day trip with one of our Lower professional fly fishing guides is all about.

First thing’s first, you do not need to be an expert angler to have a great day with a fly fishing guide! We host tons of people down there who’ve never 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 Deschutes River is a major rush and one of our favorite things to do.

Your experience with one of our Oregon fishing guides will be an all day adventure. Throughout the day you’ll drift eight miles, stopping to fish and eat lunch. During the summer months we offer either an early-on/early-off or mid-day until 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 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 day – because the Deschutes River canyon is epic in every way!

Starting at Little Lava Lake in central Oregon, this 252 mile, southward flowing River, takes a turn at the Wikiup Reservoir, defies gravity and flows north until it empties into the ... moreColumbia River. Archaeologists will tell that for eons, the Deschutes was an important route for Native Americans as they traveled to and from the Columbia. Later, in the 19th century, Historians will tell you that the river was an important marker for pioneers, eventually becoming part of the famous Oregon Trail.

Today the river is considered an important part of our national heritage due to its extraordinary beauty and bountiful fisheries. Over 145 miles of the river have been designated as a National Recreational River while another 30 miles are crowned with National Wild and Scenic River distinction. Typically thought of in three sections – upper, middle and lower - the river passes through high arid country, flower filled meadows, and steep canyons.

As an official “blue ribbon” river, the Deschutes is perhaps most famous for its Columbia River redband trout, known locally as redsides. These trout have an unusual, bright red stripe that covers the bottom half of their bodies; the spots on the upper body are darker than other wild rainbow. Depending on where you are on the river, there can be as many as 1,700 redbands per mile, ranging from 8 – 16 inches.

Warm Springs to Macks Canyon is the preferred stretch for catching redbands. There is good redband fishing along Warm Springs Tribal Land but special permits are required. The section from Pelton Dam to the River’s mouth has high concentrations of wild trout, including summer steelhead. The entire river is managed as a wild trout fishery.
Outfitter
Opening a fly-fishing shop in Bend, Oregon is the culmination of a dream that took shape decades ago as the Cook family traversed the Western United States on family fishing and camping ... moretrips. Papa Glen and son Scott spent every spare minute plying rivers throughout the Sierra Nevada and Rocky Mountain ranges. And in each town they would visit the local fly shop. They took copious notes; slowly shaping their vision of what the ultimate fly shop would look and feel like. And thus, Fly and Field Outfitters came to fruition.

Our outfitting operation is second to none. This is a business founded after decades of research. Every person working on our staff has hired guides and outfitters in the past and we all appreciate what makes for a special day on the water with a professional guide. This is not something we take for granted. We fully understand and appreciate what a day with a professional guide means to our clients. Our goal is to create an experience you’ll never forget and want to re-live over and over. So if you’ve always wanted to spend a day fly fishing the Deschutes River, learn Spring Creek Tactics from a pro, catch a giant trout on a beautiful lake, or just take your kid out and catch your first fish on a fly rod, we have guided fishing trips to fulfill any aspiration.

Our goal here at Fly and Field is to create a lasting experience that leaves every client with the feeling that they are a part of our family, whether in the shop or on the water. With years in the making, we at Fly and Field know to surround ourselves with passionate, experienced, and above all, honest folks that truly love what they do. This “family” attitude is entrenched in every aspect of the business. You will hear it in the enthusiasm of the conversations and feel it the moment you walk through the door. So, whether you are a beginning fly fisher, or a veteran angler, you will be made to feel right at home here. We look forward to seeing you at the shop and on the water!
