A friend is visiting from Tennessee for a few days starting on Sept 26, and he wants to catch a steelhead. He visited last winter and caught a winter steelhead, and he would really like to catch a summer. Should I take him to the D, or somewhere else, maybe a costal river? I've only fished the D, Clack, and N Santiam for steelhead. We would be camping for 4 to 5 nights, so a little longer drive is OK.

I would love to explore some new water, but for this trip it's more important that a not too experienced flyfisher catch a steelhead!

Also, where can I rent a good pontoon for him?

Thanks for any info, and PMs are welcomed.

If you want a better than average chance to get a steelhead, try the Deschutes.

Late Sept, early Oct are goods times to hit the Deschutes because the fish are there and the crowds are smaller.

From what I know, the Deschutes as well as N. Umpqua and Rogue should be doing pretty good at that time. I guess keep checking for reports as the date closes in.

You can rent pontoons from Water Ready. See link at the top of the page.

Good Luck
