Oregon Steelhead

Deschutes River Steelhead Report by Brian Portwood

Angler: Brian Portwood
Trip Taken: Deschutes River Steelhead
Date: Aug 18th, 2019

We fished with Pete Fields on the Deschutes River in central Oregon, and had an amazing fishing trip. He was very knowledgeable about the fly fishing and the history of the area we fished. He made the day trip about more than just the steelhead fishing, which is what I enjoyed the most. Anyone can catch fish, but our guide made it an experience, and we still caught fish!

There's a reason I keep booking this steelhead fishing trip!
Second time I’ve done this particular trip. The steelhead run was awesome! The food was even better than the first time, which is hard to imagine, and our guide is the best there is! If catching big fish is your thing I highly recommend booking through Outdoors International.

I expected big trout on this trip based on all the stories I've read over the years, and I was not disappointed! I broke my own personal best rainbow trout record at least SIX times on this trip, with the biggest being a 16 pound beauty.

I will be going again soon!
