DESCHUTES 2011 CANE ROD TOUR
We again floated with Travis Johnson, for two days this year. We only fished our cane rods. My friend Ken used his Sharpes 13' for a 9 and I used my 12'-7/8 Bob Clay. We also took a couple of single hand wood sticks, Kens being a 9 1/2' Orvis Shooting Star with which he landed 2 fish and I took my 9' Southbend which I never got out. All floating lines and small wet flies. We had an outstanding trip and I highly recommend Travis Johnson as a top of the line Deschutes guide.

Dean River Anglersí Creed

I will:

respect the river, its fish and fellow anglers.
share the water and practice rotation angling.
park my vehicle out of sight and sound of other anglers.
keep my camp clean and bearproof.
leave only my footprints: my garbage goes out with me.
be careful with my campfire.
maintain a pit toilet and not foul the river.
give wading anglers a wide berth with my powerboat.
not discharge firearms unnecessarily.
respect and not harass wildlife.

These are a pretty good set of rules for any river!

A close friend invited me to float the Deschutes river with him on Aug 8, 2010. He had booked a guide day with John and Amy Hazel with the guide being Travis Johnson.

We arrived in Maupin on the afternoon of the 7th and I got my fishing license squared away then we made a visit to Deschutes Angler fly shop. This place is awesome. It is a large, well appointed shop with anything a fly angler could want. I highly recommend a visit to anyone in the aera. We had a little visit with John, Amy, and the dogs and headed downstream to Beavertail campground.

At 4:30am the next morning we were loaded up and on our way. We had action on and off all day and I managed to land one about 9#. I can say these Deschutes fish are HOT.

Travis Johnson is an excellent guide. He is young, personable, knowledgable, energetic, and funny. He didn't harass me about my bad casts and I made some. This guy knows this river and where the fish are. I would highly recommend Travis and JHC guide service to anyone thinking of a trip on the "D". They get my 5 spey fly rating.
