Little Deschutes River - Roseland Park to Deschutes River



This section of the Littel Deschutes offers many possible day runs as well as an overnight or weekend trip if you plan carefully.  Roseland park is the first recommended area to where the river becomes navigable by watercraft but lots of fishing options exist much further upstream of Roseland Park.

This river isn't known for it's whitewater and the fishing can be from dismal to OK.  However, if you want a classic Oregon scenic relaxed float and catch a little fishing while you meander down river, the Little Deschutes is a good option when flows are agreeable.
