If you are a Disabled Veteran this trip is completely free for you. We do not pay for your travel or lodging. These trips cost the average civilian up to and over $600 a day per head. You will meet us and get sized for waders and boots and hop in the truck for the drive down to the Deschutes River below Shearers falls. We will launch the boat and run down river and fish a full day. We provide lunch and casting/fishing instructions. You do not need to know how to fish to come with us. Even if you don’t want to fish and just come along for the ride we are more than happy to oblige since just scenics trips and the jetboat experience is a blast to experience in itself. You can expect to be back at your vehicle around 8 PM the same day.

You must have a Form of ID, an Oregon Fishing license with Columbia river basin endorsement and steelhead tag at https://or.outdoorcentral.us/or/license or we can help you get your license and tags when you arrive in the morning. We do not provide the cost of your license and tags.
