Water Time Outfitters the Year Ahead Guide Trip Schedule

It’s been a great year and we are really looking forward to 2019!  Here is the general outline of what our year ahead looks like.  There are so many great opportunities here fishing Oregon’s finest waters and we can’t wait to share them with you.  Be sure to save your dates soon as our calendar fills fast!

Guided Fishing Trips- Through the Seasons

Jan-March Steelhead

This is prime time for Winter Steelhead!  This is also your best opportunity for the biggest steelhead of the year.  The Water Time guide team can be found fishing a number of Oregon coastal waters, the Sandy and the Clackamas rivers this time of year.  Drift boat, jet boat or rafts we take you to the best spots for optimum opportunities.  Call or email for more details. 


Clackamas River steelhead fishing- this is a great time of year on the Clackamas!  We focus this month here as it provides opportunity for wild steelhead, broodstock hatchery steelhead and early run summer steelhead.  It’s also a nice time to be on the river- traffic is low and the vibrant greens of spring abound.  We operate 2 jet boats this time of year and can accomodate groups up to 6.  For more info and pricing. 


Deschutes Trout season is prime!  This is the famous salmon fly hatch time of year.  We start at the beginning of the hatch and finish near months end.  This is one of our most popular fisheries and many of our customers save their 3-day float trip spot for many years!  We specialize in group trips up to 8 anglers floating the 32 mile section of the best trout fishing in the state!  More info and pricing.



Fly Fishing for shad is a blast and the month of June has so much opportunity.  Last year’s shad run counted over 6.3 million shad so we had plenty!  This is an exercise of the arm muscles and just plain rod bending fun!  These trips are just 4 hours and super easy just hop in the boat and we take care of the rest.  Come join us!  More info and pricing.

Smallmouth Bass- July


Smallmouth bass fishing on the Willamette River can be an absolute blast-this fun and easy fishery is great for the whole family!  Single day trips not too far from Portland for hard fighting smallmouth bass.  Call or email for more details. 

August and September

Steelhead on the lower Deschutes is one of the best fisheries on the planet.  Swinging floating fly lines for summer steelhead doesn’t get any better.  We look forward to improved numbers of fish this year as ocean conditions have improved.  We operate 2 jet boats for this fishery and provide the most comfortable camp possible; from hot cookies coming out of our oven to the big canvas tents, hammocks and shower every detail is dialed in for you!  More info and prices

October and November

Fall steelhead on the Deschutes is one of the finest things in life for me!  This time of year is a favorite as the season starts to change.  Enjoy the fall colors, a crispness in the air, our most amazing comfortable camp and a drift boat float through America’s best treasured canyon- add in beautiful fall steelhead and chunky rainbow trout and it’s an amazing adventure you can’t miss!  More info and prices


This is time for steelhead again – looking to the Clackamas river for pods of steelhead responsive to the swung fly.  Sometimes this fishery is amazing and sometimes not so good.  Call us for the report! Full day or half day drift boat trips in late November and December.
