Cancelled- Due to exceptionally high and fast river flows, this outing has been cancelled. Peter Maunsell will be issuing outing fee refunds over the next few weeks. Outing Leaders: Rene Schindele, Tim Schindele and Carleigh Romeis 

We will be camping, as usual, at the Beavertail Campground 10 miles below Sherar’s Falls. The campground is halfway between Lone Pine Put-in and Mack’s Canyon Campground. On Saturday, folks can float from Lone Pine down to Beavertail or from Beavertail down to Mack’s. And vice versa on Sunday.

There are tons of places to bank-fish along the road.  Go online to purchase an Oregon fishing license and a Deschutes River Floaters Pass (if you are going to float the river); there will be a campground fee as well.


The outings fee is $25.  NFA will provide all the meals for the weekend from Saturday breakfast through Sunday lunch. Bring your own beer, wine, and hard stuff.
