"My wife and I decided to learn how to fly fish. Deep Canyon set us up with a guide by the name of Matt. We met at a 1st class fly shop, We picked up our licenses and necessary flies and we were off to Crooked River. Matt spent 6 hours with us on the river and was very knowledgable. He made the experience fun and we will definitely continue to learn more in the future."

"My boyfriend (had never been fishing before) and I (some fishing experience) did a guided fly fishing river trip with Matt and it was amazing! Matt started with simple instruction for both of us on the water and continued to instruct, demonstrate and give us pointers throughout the day. We both caught fish (always a bonus!) and Matt was right there to help us land them and get pictures. We also both caught trees and other non-fish items, and Matt, again, was right there to get us out of our own mess. Overall, we had perfect weather, a great lunch, a great guide and we caught fish; a day doesn't get much better than that!"

"I have a friend who wanted me to take him on a fly fishing trip. I called Deep Canyon and they set me up with a great Guide John. We spent the afternoon on the Crooked River and my Friend TIm was into fish at the get go. I had such a great time I am booking again in May."

"Michael took us to Crooked River to flyfish rainbow trout. There were three of us with experience levels from raw novice to advanced beginner/ intermediate. Michael had all of us casting well and catching plenty of fish all with great patience and good humor. The biggest treat was changing location and finding a rare feeding frenzy at a hatch. Watching large trout boil at your feet in the hundreds is an experience not to be missed."

"One of my best fishing experiences ever. The professionalism, attention to detail, knowledge and friendliness of Damien and Jeremiah made my fishing trip in Oregon one of the best in my life.
Jeremiah put me in incredible water that held some of the most amazing fish I've ever cast to, and helped me land them!
Hats off to you guys, I wish every guided trip I have been on was as good as this one.
Can't wait to go fishing with you guys again soon!

"We went to the Crooked River with Jeremiah as our guide and couldn't have had a better experience. My wife has wanted to learn to Fly Fish for a long time and she now is hooked! Jeremiah was knowledgeable, patient, and so personable; he made our experience. We will be back next year and will be asking for him again."

"I took my first every guided fly fishing trip on the 5th of July with Jeff. He was outstanding. He was able to answer all of my questions and point me in the right direction. His instruction and knowledge about all aspects of fishing was very much appreciated. I now feel confident I can begin fly fishing on my own after his instruction. This was a great experience I wish I would have experienced a long time ago. I couldn't have asked for a better guide.

"My family of 4 (me, wife, daughter 23, and son 16) had never been fly fishing before. Our Deep Canyon Outfitter Guide, Austin, was OUTSTANDING and had us all geared up and roll casting in the Crooked River in no time. We learned a lot, and caught multiple rainbows, including a couple big ones, before we were ready for lunch. All our gear was provided for us, so this was a wonderful outing for any family!"

"Our guide, Matt, was very professional, knowledgable, and patient with us novices. We learned a lot for our first experience fly fishing, even managed to land a few rainbow trout!
Thank you Deep Canyon Outfitters and Confluence Fly Shop.
