Ask any angler here in Central Oregon what they’d most prefer to do with three or four days of fishing and there’s a good chance they will tell you “Go for a camp trip on the Deschutes River!” And for good reason: there’s simply nowhere else like it when it comes to a combination of beauty, remoteness and fishing! Perhaps the greatest testament to a Deschutes River multi-day guided camp trip is that many of our guests book this trip every year. It is an addiction! To find out what a Deschutes River guided fly fishing trip is all about, check out our Deschutes River Fly Fishing Information and Fishing Reports.
One thing to understand is that you do not need to be an expert angler to enjoy a guided camp trip on the Lower Deschutes River. Fly fishers of all skill levels will enjoy the trip and find some fish willing to play. The adventure itself is what every guest remembers. And you do not need your own equipment; we supply everything. All you do is show up!
Another important note is that these are not whitewater trips! While there are a couple rapids along the way, the vast majority of the river is placid. Most hours in the boat are spent almost silently; you just sit back and take in the scenery, which is truly breathtaking.
Typically, our Lower Deschutes River guided camp trips will launch either at Warm Springs or remote Trout Creek and spend three or four days drifting to Maupin. However, we also offer early season (August to mid-September) trips on the lowest section of river from Macks Canyon to the confluence with the Columbia River. Once floating down the river, you quickly bid goodbye to civilization. All the world’s worries evaporate for these precious days and nights. The canyon takes you in, massive and encompassing. This is the rarest treat: disconnecting with the electronic world, being engulfed by nature, history and tradition.
Whether you opt for a 2, 3, 4 or 5 day guided camp trip on the Lower Deschutes River, you can expect a first class experience. Each day an advanced gear boat, the “bagger,” will row ahead and have a luxurious camp awaiting you at day’s end. The bagger is also our camp chef. He prepares mouth-watering dishes that leave no appetite unsatisfied. After a hearty dinner, our guests usually enjoy a cold, malty beverage (or three!) while telling fish stories and stargazing into the immense, dark sky. When it comes time for sleep, oversized tents and comfortable cots await. Mornings in camp can be as laid back as you like or a mad dash to the water. Regardless, the bagger will have hot coffee and a delicious hot breakfast prepared before you continue down river. Hot BBQ lunches are prepared daily streamside by your guide.
