Steelhead on the Fly

July to November

Whether we meander downstream in drift boats or utilize the agility of our jet boats, this single-day desert river trip aims to get you into steelhead on the swung fly — the hallmark approach to fishing the Deschutes. Regardless of whether you prefer to fish floating or sinking lines, this technique coupled with our guidance is designed to yield the ultimate reward.

December to May

The diversity of fly fishing waters within a couple of hours of Portland is staggering. Let us help you find the best option. From our lodge on the North Fork of the Nehalem River, to world-class coastal salmon and steelhead streams such as the Nestucca, Trask, Wilson and Kilches, and back home on the Clackamas and Sandy River, we have you covered.

What if we told you that merely a few minutes outside of Portland’s urban center lay a steelhead fishery to rival all others? Actually, there are two. But it’s the Clackamas that we call our home waters. And it’s the one that makes for the perfect navigable jet boat experience when chasing big, wild (and hatchery) steelhead. It’s hard to believe how good it can be.

July to November

This is the steelhead camp of your dreams. You’ll awake refreshed in one of our canvas tents, with a cup of hot coffee awaiting you. Slip into your waders and step into a prime steelhead run only a few feet away and the possibility of a grab but a cast away. Delicious meals served between promising reaches of the best steelhead water the Deschutes has to offer.

July to November

This is it! When the stars align and we see the most aggressive steelhead of the season. (And you have the best chance of seeing every inch of your backing.) The jet boat offers unparalleled mobility on the river, allowing us to stay in shaded water longer and fish specific runs and light angles during the right time of day. All with minimum downtime between every run.
