Deschutes Season Breakdown


Early steelhead start showing up in June though we typically don’t see good numbers until July. However, June is primetime for Deschutes trout fishing. Expect great trout fishing with the possibility of a steelhead.


The majority of Deschutes steelhead returning in July are wild. These chrome missiles are by far the hottest fish of the season and take the fly extremely well. July is a wonderful month to be on the Deschutes if you don’t like crowds. The trout fishing remains strong.

About The Fishing

Deschutes steelhead start showing up in good numbers by mid-July. The run continues through November. Resident rainbows, called “Redsides” for their distinct markings, are present year round.

Fishing Itinerary

Your trip will begin at Heritage Landing at the mouth of the Deschutes River at 2:00pm in the afternoon. From Heritage, we ascend the river's amazing canyon in my jet boat to a campsite up river. Many folks comment that the jet boat ride is worth the price of admission alone!
