Our wildly popular Evening Hatch trout floats are a great option for the visiting angler. These float trips are available during prime trout season when the days are long and the evening hatches are heavy - May 15 through August 1.
TIME OF YEAR
GOOD TO NOTE
Price is INCLUSIVE for one (1) or two (2) Anglers. Many fishing partners split the cost of this trip and have a great time while enjoying the Deschutes River.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We launch the boat at 5:00 PM and finish the float at twilight, which means that you will be fishing right up until it is too dark to see to tie on another fly. As the light leaves the water and the sun dips behind the canyon walls the trout fishing can be insane. The bug hatches are so thick at times that you need to wear a bandana over your mouth to keep from inhaling bugs on every breath. The fishing is fast and furious as the trout lose their inhibitions as we lose the daylight. This is our least expensive float trip option and a great way for those with limited time to get exposed to the wonderful trout fishing the Deschutes has to offer.
WHAT IS PROVIDED
Snacks and beverages are provided. Since it is against the law to fish from any floating device on the Deschutes River, our guides use drift boats as a mode of transportation and to access both sides of the river. The guide stops the boat at various spots throughout the day for guests to wade and fish. Wading the Deschutes is challenging in spots, but our guides know every rock in the river and will edit the wading to fit your ability.
Deschutes Redside trout are as powerful inch for inch as any rainbow trout on the planet. Dry fly fishing is our specialty, and we plan our trips in order to have you in the best water at the best times of day to take advantage of the hatches. Your guide is a bird dog, scrambling up the bank to a high vantage point to spot your next target. Once a feeding trout is located, your guide will be at your side to line you up for an opportunity at a fish of a lifetime. The beauty of the desert canyon can be distracting, so keep your eyes on the prize while wading and enjoy the scenery as you float to the next great spot.
