Dillon grew up with a fly rod and was raised chasing trout and steelhead on the Deschutes and North Umpqua Rivers. Following the path of his dad, David Renton, guiding seemed to be a natural step forward into the world of fly fishing and a love for Pacific rivers has been burned deep. In his many years of guiding, Dillon has learned to enjoy the time between fish. The entire process is important to Dillon and he takes time to enjoy the beautiful places and moments on the river with his clients while imparting his vast knowledge of place and sport.
