Deschutes Summer Steelhead 48-hour Spey School
Maximum of (4) students, single occupancy in tents
Each part of this school features an attentive staff, a big, powerful, roomy jet boat, and the best camp on the river. Mid-August is prime time for Deschutes River steelhead fishing. You will graduate from this school with extensive proprietary knowledge of steelhead fly fishing and Spey rod casting.
We will camp on prime water and will have boat access to many miles of steelhead runs that will present a diverse array of angling opportunities and challenges. Classes will be held mid-day. You will fish with a guide each morning and evening.
Brunch and dinner will be served at times to give you the best fishing periods. This will give you the best advantage for hooking as many steelhead as possible during your stay with us. Nothing teaches you more about fishing than being where fish are being hooked and landed.
You will learn all aspects of Spey rod fishing with both floating and sinking-tip lines. Learn how to locate steelhead water and how to approach it. Watch an expert guide as he fishes and discloses the secrets and proven methods that put fish on the beach. Get a lot of hands-on help (one guide/instructor for four students) so that you too, can be productive. Save yourself years of experimenting on your own.
