As winter takes hold here in northern Oregon, my Deschutes steelhead season draws to a close. Despite some wet weather near the end, it was a great steelhead year on the Deschutes. The fish showed up in relatively good numbers in July. August, while hotter than any month I can remember, fished suprisingly well. As the summer turned to fall we had some big pushes of chromers arrive. Finally, October was the month of giants... There were some big critters in the crick! -The biggest of the year was a stout 17 lb. buck. Pure awesome.
I have a last minute opening on the Deschutes for next week. The three day/two night camp begins Wednesday, September 10th at 2:00 pm. We'll be off the water around lunch time on Friday, September 12th.

Last week officially kicked off the 2014 Deschutes Steelhead Camp season for Larimer Outfitters!
From now until early November I'll be living in a tent on the banks of the Deschutes -Mondays through Fridays. If you need to reach me, I'll be checking my emails and returning calls on the weekends. Texting me at (541) 490-9446 is the easiest way to reach me during the week.
See you on the water!
As we transition into mid-summer steelhead once again begin ascending the Deschutes River. I'm looking forward to the 2014 season! I've been busy getting camp ready; mending tents, working on the jet boat and buying supplies.
I have a couple of open spots for singles and doubles sharing the camp with other anglers. Please shoot me an email if you want to get on the water!
Open 2014 Dates:
One of the best parts of my Deschutes Steelhead Camps is fishing camp water. After a restful night of sleep, there's nothing like rolling out of bed, grabbing a quick hardy breakfast followed by swinging your fly through some of the best steelhead water in the world.

Rich Kornbroth found this beautiful wild buck on the Deschutes last fall. Its always nice to start the day with a fish in camp water!

If you've ever been to my Deschutes Steelhead Camp, or maybe you've seen it while floating the lower river, you've probably wondered how the heck we get all that gear up the river. Well, here's my sled loaded up with all the tents, kitchen, groover, food and other gear.
"Piggy" would be a good way to describe how the boat runs when she's fully loaded, but it's worth hauling all the crap up there to have a very comfortable camp!
