The Deschutes is one of those rivers that has been on my to-do list for years. I've always thought of it as a guided-trip only, though. Didn't realize you could walk to spots on the lower river (didn't realize the Maupin stretch was even considered the lower river).

So, maybe the Deschutes can be a DIY steelhead trip after all, though I have to admit I'm a bit skeptical about finding fish in all that water.
