Hi, I've never fished the Deschutes before, much less floated it, so I'm looking for some advice: By way of background, I'm taking a 3 day spey casting course on the river near Maupin that concludes on Sept 20th. On the 21st I want to undertake a full day float, fishing for steelhead using what I hope are some newly acquired spey-casting skills. At this point, I'm doing this alone using an 8' pontoon boat in which I've floated the Stilly and easy sections of the Sky. I'm comfortable but by no means am I an expert. Are there sections of the Deschutes that can be comfortably floated with an 8' pontoon boat? Cheers, Michael P.S. If anyone thinks they might want to partner up, send me an email ([email protected]). However, I am locked into the 21st of September.
