Deschutes River Fishing

Summer Steelhead is my favorite time of the year. It’s been a good season so far. Not a lot of fish but consistent fishing, plus some Salmon to help out the freezer. Open seats available for August 2024!

Doing our best to get camp ready. The camp guys have been busting it. Almost completed setting up guest tents. Fishing should be good tomorrow. More pics to come.

Who’s living in there I wonder.
