Grande Ronde River Canyon

Located on the Grande Ronde River, near Troy, Oregon, this low key, high value operation is where some of the Northwest’s finest steelheaders and Spey casters congregate for a final month of guiding and instruction. Renowned Spey instructor, Scott O’Donnell, heads a crew of diehard steelhead guides who love the Ronde and the steelhead it sustains.

Limited to six anglers per week, this is not only an operation that prides itself on fishing hard, but also a place where anglers can learn a great deal about steelhead fly fishing and the art of Spey casting. Often described as a miniature Deschutes or a tiny replica of the Thompson, the Ronde has cast its spell on many of the sport’s most distinguished steelheaders and Spey casters. We invite you to join their ranks.
