Thick Oregon Steelhead

Deschutes River Steelhead Fishing Report by Michael Salas

Trip Taken: Deschutes River Steelhead

Had a great steelhead fishing experience on the Lower Deschutes River in Oregon with fishing guide Pete Field. I spent about  eight hours on the water with Pete, and his instruction on Spey casting (I was a first timer with a two-handed rod) was easily understood. Pete was a supportive and patient instructor. He was professional, personable, and answered all and any questions without any B.S.

Simply put, my fishing trip was fantastic! Knowledgeable about the species, habitat, and techniques used in fly fishing for them. Pete also provided a verbal tour of interesting points about the areas geography, and history. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Deschutes River Guides to anyone who wants a wonderful 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!
