Northwest Fly Fishing Outfitters offers guided fly fishing trips for trout and steelhead on Oregon's top rivers.

Deschutes River

Welcome to the mighty Deschutes! This famous river is located in the high desert of Central Oregon. The lower 100 miles is Oregon’s premier river for rainbow trout and summer steelhead.

The Deschutes boasts 2500 native redside trout per mile. These fish average 10 to 16 inches, with trout over 18 inches a possiblitily. In late July, summer steelhead begin to arrive. Great sport on a fly rod, the average Deschutes steelhead weighs 6-7 lbs., with 15-plus pounders lurking in the shadows.

For trout or steelhead, the Deschutes is unchallenged as Oregon’s—and maybe the Northwest’s—finest fishery.

Clackamas River and Sandy Rivers Steelhead Trips

These are our “Home Waters”, and are we ever fortunate! Literally in our back yard, we can be fishing on either river within a 15 minute drive from our shop. We grew up fishing these rivers, and love showing their beauty to our clients. Although both rivers are in the Portland Metro area, don’t think you’ll be fishing amidst rush hour traffic. With the Sandy on the North Eastern edge and the Clackamas on the South Eastern edge, these rivers are wild, scenic, and offer breath taking views.

The Depending on the run times, you’ll find us with “Spey Rod” in hand, on the prowl for chrome Steelhead November through June. Winter fish start showing up with the first rains of November and continue into March. Summer Runs start coming in late March and keep coming until June. For those of you who are counting, that is eight months of bright Steelhead.
