We hired Deep Canyon Outfitters to take my family of four fly fishing for the first time in early June 2020. As we were all fly fishing rookies, we really enjoyed ourselves and appreciated the patience and teaching of our guides Brendan and Nicholai. We met at the Confluence Fly Shop in the Old Mill District of Bend and then drove south past Sunriver to a beautiful section of the Upper Deschutes River. Gear sizing, fishing licenses and equipment was all taken care of with the owner Tye prior to our arrival at the shop. Brendan and Nicholai did a great job with my two teenage boys (15 and 13). They were patient, instructive and provided an overall great introduction to fly fishing. We nymphed early in the morning and then switched to dry flies later on. They taught us how to tension cast, roll cast and mend our lines. It was fun being a rookie at something new and both guides were great teachers. We learned how to read the water, how the weather affects the bite and the entomology of what the fish eat and when. Looking forward to our next trip to Bend and fly fishing with Deep Canyon Outfitters will be a part of the agenda.

The guide service didn’t really listen to my needs and what I was looking for and they strongly advise/pushed the guides choice. I had said that I preferred fishing from the boat as my friend is a beginner and my knees are bad and I wasn’t looking to be getting in and out of the boat a lot and yet the guide picked the lower Deschutz through the Indian Reservation which you cannot fish from the boat and all you do is get in and out of the boat and fish long line nymphing which got really boring really quickly, catching whitefish and little rainbows. Seems to me that the big ones – the ones you want to catch are out in the middle River where we couldn’t get because were not allowed to fish from the boat. This is not the trip I was looking for nor would I ever do it again. I hope in the future that in dealing with the customer on the front end they do a better job listening.

I found Depp Canyon Outfitters online but actually had booked with another outfitter until I spoke to Tye. I want to say thank you to Tye for spending at least 30 minutes on the phone answering all my fly fishing questions and then making some valuable recommendations on what to do with only two days to fish. Lower Deschutes one day with Jared and the second day with Brendan. Great Guide Alert!!! These two guys are totally awesome and you can feel how much they love there job. Super passionate about instruction, knowledge of the terrain and water, and boy can they cook!! My son and I had a great experience for our first fly fishing trip to Bend. I would not use anyone else and recommend that you call Tye or Kyle immediately to book your trip. Do not even mess around with checking the others. This is the one!! We met at Confluence Fly Shop early and picked up our flies and some sun protection. They make lunch and bring drinks for you. Nice touch. The trip is amazing whether a one day or extended trip. I am already planning my next 3 day float trip to Bend next May 2020. Thanks to the whole crew!! Shout out to Jared and my mammoth mate, Brendan. You guys rock!! Thanks for a really memorable fly fishing experience. We will be back!

My son and I booked a one day float trip in July. We had a great trip and lost count of the number of fish we caught by lunch. Jared Burton was a marvelous guide with extensive knowledge of the Deschutes and provided excellent instruction on the art of nymphing. My son and I have been dry fly fisherman all of our lives and Jared provided tips and tricks that made us look at each other and say "Why did not we think of that!!" After the day was done we decided to make this kind of trip an annual event and can't wait for the Salmon Fly hatch next May. Definitely going to use Deep Canyon Outfitter and requesting Jared for the guide.

I found Deep Canyon completely by accident, and luck was on my side. I had a ball fishing the Upper Deschutes River with Deep Canyon guide, Katie. The river was beautiful and full of fat rainbows and brook trout which I never would have caught without Katie's help. She really knew the river, and how to fish it. We pulled some big, beautiful trout from that river. I've been fishing for years, but I also learned a few new tricks from Katie that have upped my game a lot. Also, the Deep Canyon Team at the shop was a pleasure to deal with. And Katie is just a hoot to spend the day with.
