For Trout In The Deschutes River?
With guides booked at The Fly Fishing Shop - Welches, OR?
Much of your comfort and fishing success will be determined by your advance planning.  You want to have enough gear for maximum enjoyment of your destination fishery, but you don't want to pack more than you need.  Your Pre-travel check list is your equipment list and much more.  It is part of your preparation plan.

You must have an Oregon Fishing License and Steelhead Tag.
Daily licenses include this tag.  Annual licenses do not.

The Fly Fishing Shop does not sell fishing licenses.
Oregon Fishing Licenses can be purchased online: Purchase License Online
If you are boating the Deschutes River you also will need a Deschutes Boaters Pass.
If you are fishing with us the boater pass is included in the price of your trip.
Some dates are limited entry, and the boater pass can not be in the guides name.
You will need to furnish personal information to your guide so he can purchase your boater pass for you.
