Dan helped me and two buddies on a three day fly fishing camp trip on the Deschutes river. He's a great teacher and put us where there were fish. I highly recommend his guide services for future adventures.

Dan is AMAZING! He took my sister and I on a day trip through the Deschutes River in Oregon and it was the absolute best experience! As we both had never gone fly fishing before, Dan was very patient with us and taught us everything we needed to know. We both caught over 8 fish each so clearly his lessons were very helpful. He took lots of pics of us with the fish and was quick to get them to us afterward. He was friendly, kind, and very personable, will definitely be booking any future trips with him! Overall 20/10 experience, HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM! Also, he is available for guide on pretty much any river in Oregon and is flexible to meet you closest to where you will be fishing. BOOK DAN now and you won’t regret!

Took my son on his first trip w Dan. It was great. Easy to understand for both mom and teen son. Listened to our goals for the trip and was quick to adjust attention and coaching.

Over the past three years, I have fished with Dan Anthon half a dozen times on the Fall, Lower Deschutes, and McKenzie rivers in central Oregon. On all these rivers, Dan has explained how to fish these waters and why casting techniques and setups need to be tuned to the characteristics of the particular river. Through his explanations, I have gained an appreciation for Dan’s deep background in fish biology and fisheries management. He quickly observed my weaknesses in casting and line management and coached me on how and why to make adjustments and incorporate new methods so I could get my flies “into the dining room” where the fish were holding. Dan’s methods are well organized to provide a good balance of seeing different waters but also enough time to practice new methods and gain confidence by hooking and landing nice fish. Being a retired college professor, I appreciate quality teaching and Dan is a really good teacher who takes the time to explain the how and the why of his methods. I am fortunate to live in central Oregon so I can return to these rivers on my own and apply what I learned from Dan. Without question, I am miles ahead of where I would be without Dan Anthon’s guidance.

Dan is an amazing fly fishing guide! He’s one of my favorites of all time and I’ve ever been out with guides all over the country. I would highly recommend that you book him over one of the big fly fishing shops. He is highly experienced, a great teacher, but also very thoughtful and personable. What a great guy & guide!
