Trout Single-Day Float Trips – Deschutes
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.
