In case you didn’t know, the Deschutes River is a gem among NW rivers and a mecca for trout anglers; this summer, caddis hatches – met by wild rainbow trout and the scenic canyon setting combine to provide you a must experience river trip.  With the full beauty of the deep canyon and surrounding wildlife it’s easy to see why the river has been declared a National Scenic Waterway.  This world class fishery is only available to guides like WTO with exclusive BLM permits.  Join us for a drift boat float trip searching out the riffles, sudsy eddies and foamy pockets for the amazing Deschutes River rainbows.
The Fishing:
Trout on the Deschutes average a strong 14″ with some fish up to 20″ these fish are solid and strong fighters that in my opinion would whip any Montana trout.  The oxygenated waters of the Deschutes average a steady 6 mph, combined with a heady diet of protein these feisty fish put up a good battle.  July-October expect good to excellent hatches of caddis.  These fluttering moth-like insects are a staple on the daily diet for these fish this time of year.  We fish dries in pockets, riffles and eddies to rising fish often spotting big bruisers and fishing to specific fish.  When the dry fly action is not on – working subsurface with nymphs is a deadly combination.
The NEW Twist:
You may have heard or perhaps not but the new strategy that is simply killing it in the right water is Euro-Nymphing.  This technique brought to us by the Europeans and World Tournament fly anglers has been refined and tuned for our NW fisheries and Euro-nymphing at times is literally amazing on the Deschutes!  Come and learn this new strategy you can employ on your favorite river.  PLUS-our guides have been finding some BIG rainbows with streamer fishing strategies.  If you’d like to learn the EURO-NYMPH, STREAMER Strategies or just fish dries this trip is a blast!
