Deschutes River Fishing
About 100 miles East of Portland Oregon lies the world-famous Deschutes River known for it’s steelhead and being a somewhat rare Northerly flowing river (along with the Willamette and John Day rivers). World leaders have come to the Deschutes to fish and it has also been made famous by several movies.
It flows for over 250 miles, drops about 1,300 feet in elevtion, and supports Steelhead, Salmon, Red Sides, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, and other highly sought after species of wild game.
The Deschutes River can be treacherous for the inexperienced boater and only those who know the river well as Bob Toman does should run the river as many have lost their boats and more to the beautiful desert vein.
I have fished with Bob & Jeremy Toman at Toman’s on the Nushagak River for several years and have caught more salmon with them on a single day than anywhere else in the world, and I have fished all over for a profession! We filmed a few documentaries there because the fishing was so good.Sam Potter
Having fished with several outfitters on the Nushagak River, I found the best place was with Toman’s King Camp. Their accommodations are comfortable, the food is excellent, the guides are fantastic, but more than anything, the people and atmosphere are the best on the river.Dave Sprague
I spent the entire summer with my dad Sam Potter fishing all over Alaska from Southeast to Bristol Bay and may places in-between and I can say that I had the most amount of fun and caught the most fish while fishing with Bob Toman at his camp on the Nushagak in Alaska.Shane Potter
