Anglers’ paradise: Deschutes River, Oregon


We know you anglers out there–even in the dead of winter, you’re thinking about the next time you’ll be out on the water with a rod in your hand.

Maybe you got some cool new hand-tied flies for Christmas, or other gear that you’re eager to test (see our story on the 10 Best gifts for Fly Fishermen).

The Fly Fishing Ranches and site is made for you avid anglers. Part of the Gene Kilgore network, the site is devoted to creating the finest network of fly fishing ranches and lodges. As we continue to build our dedicated fly fishing community, we hope you will share with us: suggestions, new properties you recommend, and gear tips. And finally, we hope you will help us spread the word by telling your friends and colleagues. Tell us your fishing tales—and we’ll tell you a few of ours.

The newest member of the Ranchweb family is Deep Canyon Outfitters of Central Oregon, a Deschutes River vacation ranch. Here’s how they introduce themselves: ” For the past 15 years we have been offering guided fly fishing trips on a wide variety of fisheries, from small spring creeks, vast reservoirs, and large tailwater rivers. Each location offers a unique angling experience and allows us to cater each outing to the specific needs and wants of our guests. With over 15 fisheries within an hours drive of the lodge, it is easy to create a memorable fly fishing adventure.”

Sounds pretty inviting. So whether your goal is wading on the world famous Deschutes River in search of rainbow trout or summer steelhead, casting streamers for trophy rainbows in one of the area lakes, or presenting dry flies to tremendous spring fed trout, it’s all in their back yard.
