The Deschutes River is one of Oregon's most popular rivers due to its regular year-round flows, commercial trips, nearby rental shops, and abundant fair weather. Located in north-central Oregon, the lower Deschutes runs through high desert with little rainfall and lots of sun. Make sure to pack your sunscreen even if rain is forecast for coastal areas. Water flows into the lower river from its upper reaches and from several side streams fed by springs, snowmelt, and rain form Mount Hood and the Cascade Range, providing reliable year-round flows. Farms and ranches dot the riverbanks between populated areas.
