Deschutes River Tours

The Deschutes River is a major waterway running through central Oregon, a tributary of the Columbia River that separates Oregon from Washington. The Deschutes flows through several central Oregon communities, the largest being Bend, where quite a bit of water from the river is used for irrigation. It's also a major recreational waterway, both in the city of Bend and the surrounding area, used for fishing (it's world-famous for fly fishing) and rafting.

Most rivers in the United States flow south, but the Deschutes flows north – along with a few other Columbia River tributaries. At one point, there was a major waterfall on the river, which is where it got its name – Riviere des Chutes is French for River of the Falls. That waterfall is gone now, thanks to The Dalles Dam.

Practical Info

The Deschutes River is more than 250 miles long, starting at Little Lava Lake about 25 miles from La Pine and ending at the Columbia River near Biggs Junction. Floating the river is a popular summer pastime in Bend, and fly fishing enthusiasts will find plenty of opportunities in and around the town of Maupin.
