Your Hosts

David & Debbie Renton, along with their sons Dillon and Knut, provide a unique combination of skills and personality, resulting in an exceptionally special flyfishing experience. Our family has worked in a variety of positions within the flyfishing industry since the mid-1980s, guiding and outfitting on rivers and lakes from Montana to Maryland to Alaska, and many points in between.

It was in Deschutes country that David met Debbie, and it is here they settled to work and raise their family. David has spent more than 30 years exploring dozens of rivers with a fly rod. His ability to offer tailored instruction meets the needs of fisherman of all abilities. Dillon joins his father as a guide, sharing intimate knowledge he’s acquired since the age of 6. He’s also the head guide for North Umpqua operations. Debbie provides catering and “comfort” services. Knut works alongside his mother, rowing the lead gear boat, setting up camp and offering his unique hosting abilities.
