Trout Multi-Day Float Trips – Deschutes
April to November
Catching Trout on the Deschutes
The Deschutes River is a gem among northwest rivers. It’s a mecca for trout anglers in the lower 48. Excellent hatches, rising wild rainbow trout, and scenic settings put the Deschutes at the top of the list for many experienced anglers.
With the beauty of the canyon and its wildlife, it’s easy to understand why this river has been declared a National Scenic Waterway. This world-class fishery is only available to guides with exclusive BLM permits. Join us for a drift boat float trip through the canyon. We’ll search out riffles, sudsy eddies, and foamy pockets for hard-fighting Deschutes Rainbow Trout.

What to Expect on Your Multi-Day Float Trip
After experiencing our overnight trip on the Deschutes, you’ll see why most of our clients come back year after year. These multi-day floats take you into the wilds of the Deschutes River where fishing is at its best. Remote sections of river, wild trout, and big rapids make this water some of the best dry fly action around. Camping on the water also ensures that you can fish the very best parts of the hatch often right until dark.
Our comfortable camps feature large, 14’x14’ canvas tents with high sides for your relaxing “home away from home”. Our staff floats ahead to the designated camp site, prepares your lodging, and sets up an extensive kitchen. Don’t be surprised if you float into camp and smell chocolate chip cookies baking.
Guided float trips are based on 2 anglers per boat, with groups of 4 or 6 most common, more can be accommodated. We can also accommodate large corporate groups. This trip requires a 50% deposit to hold your reservation.

Being a small business and guiding on Oregon’s finest Waters, cancellations affect us greatly. When WTO reserves your fishing date, we allocate precious resources to that time frame. Each season affords us only a small window to maintain our company as a small, family-run business thriving amidst the ups and downs of NW fisheries. Cancellations received 60 days in advance of the trip date will receive a full refund. Any cancellations received less than 60 days from the trip date we will do our best to reschedule your trip if possible, but last-minute changes are often difficult as we are booked well in advance and deposits will not be refunded. We recommend purchasing trip insurance to protect you against unexpected changes to your travel plans. When weather and water conditions do not allow us to fish, we will refund your deposit in full or reschedule your trip to an agreed-upon fishing date.
