The Deschutes River

Welcome to the mighty Deschutes! This famous river is located in the high arid 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 pound fish lurking in the shadows.

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