Deschutes River Trout Camp
Multiple hatches of stoneflies (including salmonflies) crawl out of the lower Deschutes River during the first 2-weeks of May. These hatches fire up the famous Deschutes Redside Trout while the nymphs are migrating, and after the adults crawl out. Stonefly egg laying activity can trigger incredible dry fly fishing. Along with the stonefly activity there will be mayfly, midge and caddis hatches. These trout camp-out trips will be conducted the same as our famous fall steelhead camps using our jet boat and all the amenities. This section of river is nearly devoid of people during this period. Trips are run noon to noon and must incorporate a minimum of two consecutive nights. To book this trip use the shopping cart to choose your dates. If you have questions, please call: 503-781-6468
Extra tackle and training will be available for nymph, Euro nymph, trout Spey and dry fly fishing

Camp Trip Equipment List (just for ideas)
Some years there is an open season for Spring Chinooks on the Lower Deschutes River. The first two weeks in May is prime time for them. This season has yet to be established for 2020. These Chinooks eat flies as well as winter steelhead. If the Chinook Season opens, Spey tackle will be available or bring your own.
