HOME WATERS FOREVER
Greetings and Welcome. In 1985 when I opened my fly fishing business in Maupin on the Deschutes River, my goal was, and still is, to provide excellent customer service offering uniquely customized guided trips, classes and clinics. To accurately inform and report on fishing and river conditions. To always conduct business professionally, with integrity and respect. Most important, ensure a good experience and have fun!
Increasing your knowledge and improving your skill level is very important to me. I’m pleased to no end when I help someone catch a crafty wild trout, or steelhead, using artificial flies. The joy on their face is worth the extra effort it sometimes takes to be successful. It’s wonderful knowing, that enjoyable experience will stay with them for a lifetime.
The Deschutes is a big, wild, complex and dynamic river. It is extremely unique in that it provides an abundance of suitable habitat for multiple species of fish. It is one of the very few rivers in the world that hosts an endogenous resident Red Band Trout, two separate runs of Salmon, (Spring & Fall Chinook) and a Summer Steelhead run. This world renown distinction is the major reasons it is one of the most sought after rivers to fish.
For many years, the Deschutes has been one of the most challenging rivers to fish. Difficult wading, adverse structure and multiple water types, give the fish a variety of places to hide, feed and survive. These are the reasons that make this river a more rewarding places to succeed for any fly fisher.
The Descutes Canyon itself is gloriously rugged with breath taking scenery. The morning and evening light reveal dramatic rock and basalt formations that are simply astonishing. It’s home for a wide variety of wildlife from big game to water foul, raptures to upland game birds. The shoreline life consist of beaver, muskrat and mink. Just look in any direction, you’ll be pleasantly surprised of what you will see. There are many reasons to visit and enjoy what this incredible area has to offer, so even if you are not into fly fishing, there is something for every outdoor enthusiast to experience.
