Deschutes River Multi-Day Float Trips
There is good reason that the Deschutes is Oregon’s best known river. The Deschutes is a desert oasis rife with wild resident rainbows, countless rapids and stunning scenery. It is also a favored stomping ground for the Rentons, a family that has centered much of their life around this remarkable resource. David Renton has guided the river for more than 30 years and his wife Debbie has been there with him making a name for herself and their family by creating the most comfortable camps and preparing the tastiest meals that guided Deschutes anglers have ever experienced. In keeping with their priorities, they also raised their boys Dillon and Knut on the river and with time they have become an integral part of this finely tuned family-run outfitting business.
Fly fishing for trout on the Deschutes may be one of the most unique angling experiences to be found in the American west. The fish are all native, wild “redsides.” This is a distinct sub-species of rainbow trout that tend to be some of the hardest fighting trout, for their size, you’ll ever find. Add to that the size of the river these fish swim in (3,500 – 5,500 cfs) and you’ve got a real battle on your hands! The Deschutes is a healthy river system with an abundance of food for the trout. Beginning in early May, salmonflies and golden stoneflies begin hatching along the grassy banks of the Deschutes, triggering a feeding frenzy from the resident trout. If you enjoy fishing large dry flies to aggressive wild redsides, floating through a breathtaking canyon and enjoying freshly cooked, gourmet meals in the process, this is an experience you won’t want to miss.
