Deschutes Guide

Hi, long time lurker, first time poster.

Planning on fishing the Deschutes for a few days Sep 3-7 and am looking for guide recommendations.

If anyone is going to be up there and is interested in possible splitting a day or 2, let me know. Right now I am fishing solo and can only afford 1 day by myself.

Mark Bachmann from Flyfishusa is another option.

If available, first choice for his 'camp' at "The Dike."

Sven, how you doing? Still tying flies those incredible flies while waiting for conference calls overseas? Fished with you when Simon was on the Deschutes last year.

I'll add Mark Bachman as the go to guy. Mark will have you up before first light and on the water as well as have you fish until dark. His camps are hard to beat.

And he's a heck of a good cook. Has/had this Honda Generator to provide power to a couple of light bulbs inside the main cook tent and it took a nose dive. He was NOT a Happy Camper!

Asked if he had any tools (he did in the boat); that thing up and running in less than five minutes. (Dirty spark plug from too much running under low power.) Cleaned/scrubbed off the thing with beach sand, swished all that off in the water and dried same off on my shirt tail. Re-gapped the plug with a credit card and a light tapping from a rock.

He just looked at me, shook his head and: "Evans, you really are something different."

First pull on the cord and he was back in business. (Clue: Honda Gen's are almost bullet proof as long as something hasn't broken inside=really rare.)

Thumbs up What Mark didn't know.

When I got my degree in "Vineyard Management" one of the required class' was 'Small engine repair.' (Total Hoot!!) Final exam was find all the parts (same engine-several manufactures and several bins to choose from/all mixed), build an engine that ran.

You final grade was a cup of Petrol ... If the thing started on the first pull, you got an "A." Second, you get the point.

'Work Bench Pard' and I got 'A's.' We found-had the parts/engine together in less than 20 minutes.

Mark's Honda was a 'no brainer.'

Still tying, but not as much. Im currently supplementing with smaller and more sparse patterns for this year. Mostly size 8-10 classical salmon fly patterns with a few modernized thrown in such as Picasse.

All of the above are solid choices.

Two others that haven't been mentioned are Tom Larimer and Chris O'Donnell.
