Deschutes info.

Good afternooon everyone. Im so stoked to fish the Big D with my brother at the end of next month for the first time. We will be fishing for 3 days (4 mornings) and do not have a guide, we are camping and walking in wherever we fish. Ive done a good bit of research about where to camp/fish and have gotten some pretty good information but each response usually has something about "just so you know it will be really crowded" Now i am all for a rotation and certainly dont mind sharing the water with other like minds swinging for steel. I wondered if anyone would be so kind as to perhaps pm me some inside info that might possibly point us in the direction of avoiding some of the bigger crowds and possibly having some nice swing water w/o a mob already there? We absolutly dont mind hiking in, a little extra walking, etc. We arent dead set on a campsite yet either so any and all info would really be greatly appreciated by a couple of Steelhead bums just trying to do it ourselves.

As far as you are coming to fish this river and as much time as you have, I would strongly recommend hiring a guide for the 1st day. You might want to float Pine to Mack and the guide can show you a ton of good spots you can access the next 3 days on foot. Fish river left with the guide as it's hard to access without a boat. Well worth the money considering how much a guide can show you in a short amount of time. Either way you will have fun, but the learning curve is cut down so much when you hire a guide on a new river.

thanks for the info guys. Theres no question that a guide, especially in our case (travelling, new to river, etc) is absolutly worth every penny. We just cant swing it, as pulling another trip off this year was already pushing the fold financially...So, do it yourself types, we are.... Thanks again for the replies, i appreciate it.. Cheers,Chris
