Day & Multi-Day Trips
“The Fishing Gets Better As Soon As You Drop Below Trout Creek” It certainly does, how could the fishing not get better? The pressure drops by probably 90% once you row past the last boat ramp for 30 miles. Less pressure usually means very good things to the flyfisherman.
Even though the fishing is significantly better on Deschutes River Outfitters multi-day trips there are other reasons to go as well. Many clients have been so awestricken with the scenery and boat ride through the wildest stretch of the Deschutes they have asked me if I could take them and their spouse on just a float without the fly rods. I can’t do it…go past great fishing spots without sticking a fish or two would be just too hard on my heart.
Besides the great rock formations and the springs and waterfalls in the canyon there is a great boat ride. We go through one class IV rapid called Whitehorse and we go through two class III rapids on this float as well. The river is constantly moving. In fact, this stretch of river drops more gradient than the Colorado River does through the Grand Canyon.
The wildlife is also a calling card on this great trip. With deer, osprey, blue heron, geese, ducks, and golden eagles seen almost daily. We also see cougar, bear, and elk from time to time.
The wildlife, boat ride, and scenery are all great reasons to go on this trip but my favorite reason is the fishing. Because of the class IV rapid this takes out all but the best of oarsmen through this stretch of river. This naturally eliminates a bunch of competition.
The great part of booking a 3 or 4 day trip is that you fish your brains out if you wish. You can fish until dark and wake-up and start fishing again. Most of our clients choose to wait until after breakfast as their odds of catching fish go way up.
Only one word can describe the experience that you will have at Fly & Field Outfitters . . . .Family. This dream of a family owned and operated fly shop began 20 years ago. The Cook family knew to surround themselves with, passionate, experienced, and above all honest folks that truly love what they do. This “family” attitude is entrenched in every aspect of the business. Whether you are an employee, beginner fly fisher, or a veteran angler, you will be made to feel right at home. So, come and experience it for yourself.
What began as a hunch, an idea, a casual conversation between friends or family: A guided fly-fishing trip in Oregon! And now here you are! So let’s take a minute to get an overview. First, please understand that you need zero equipment to go on a guided trip with us! We supply all the essentials; rod, reel, waders, and boots are included in the cost of every trip we offer. You just need a fishing license and some flies, all of which we can provide at our shop.
It is equally important to understand that you do not need to be an experienced angler to go on a guided trip with Fly & Field Outfitters. We specialize in taking out complete beginners and getting a bent rod in their hand! Here in Central Oregon, we are fortunate to have fly fishing opportunities for people who have quite literally never picked up a rod. Check out our page on the Crooked River. It is less than an hour from our shop and full of eager, native trout and whitefish. If you’ve never fished, this is most likely where we will go. Once there, you’ll realize why!
More experienced anglers might prefer a day on the Fall River for beautiful, difficult to fool spring creek rainbows and browns. Another wonderful option is a drift down the mighty and famous Lower Deschutes for the chunky and brutally strong native Redband rainbows. Our professional river guides are on these waters year ‘round and understand what it takes to connect with fish better than anyone in the business.
Fly & Field’s flagship Oregon Guided Fishing Trip is a multi-day Deschutes Camp adventure on the Lower Deschutes River. This is one of the ultimate fly-fishing experiences you’ll ever embark on. Our guides and “baggers” (they set up camps and prepare meals – basically pamper you to death!) are amongst the most experienced in the business. This is a trip of a lifetime and we work so hard to make sure you’ll remember it forever and yearn to do it again!
Within an hour’s drive from the shop, we have the Cascade Lakes that fish wonderfully from May through October. Depending on your skill level and aspirations, we can take you to a lake where you will have lots of opportunities to catch average-sized trout or a lake where you might encounter the biggest trout of your life! Our stillwater guides have comfortable, purpose-built boats for covering as much water as necessary…in style!
All of our guides are experienced Central Oregon fly fishing anglers. We pride ourselves on being patient, encouraging, and diligent. Each of our waters demands a different approach and we customize our tackle and techniques to ensure you have the best chances of fooling fish. After all, being there is great, hooking fish is even better! Our guides will work flat out from the first cast till last to make sure you have every opportunity available to have a bent rod in your hand and a smile on your face.
Take a few minutes to check out the variety of waters, all located within an hour of Bend, Oregon. We are sure you will find one to your liking.
