DCO is a very well organized and professional operation. We had two clients in the guide's dory boat and were very well served on a beautiful early June day. The guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant to spend time with.

Great day fishing on the Lower Deschutes. We had Jerimah and John as our guides. Very helpful and patient with a few of our novice fishermen and one child. Would definitely book again with DCO.
