Deschutes Steelhead Camp
The morning hunt...

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.

Loaded Up for Deschutes Steelhead Camp

Before set up...

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!

A picture perfect wild Deschutes steelhead

I've always enjoyed guiding father and son trips. Rivers, after all, are wonderful places to make ever lasting memories between generations.

Travis Duddles from the Gorge Fly Shop and his father Albert made this sweet memory last October on the Deschutes. This beautiful wild hen slammed a purple Reverse Marabou tube and headed for the sky.

Nice fish Albert!

Deschutes Trout Fishing

Bighorn sheep are one of the common critters we see while fishing the Deschutes. Most of the time, they like to stay high on the hillsides of the canyon. I caught this flock sneaking down to the river for a drink while guiding the salmon fly hatch last spring.
