What Our Clients Say

Been fortunate to be on many guided fly fishing trips across the country and Andrew is the best I've ever spent the day with. He was extremely knowledgeable about the river, hatches as well as where the big fish hang out. He never looked at his watch one time he was only interested in me having a great day and because of Andrew I had an amazing day.

The Owyhee River

The Owyhee river is the perhaps the finest brown trout fishery in North America.  Enjoy the rugged beauty of this Eastern Oregon tailwater for it’s consistant 18-20″ brown trout.  Just 1 hour from Boise,  Idaho, over the border into Oregon, the Owyhee is a magnificent tailwater known for it’s plethora of insect life. The Owyhee is a walk and wade river with a slow gradient, perfect for all anglers to tease up some of the most finicky brown trout. Dreams on the Fly has been professionally guiding the Owyhee river for fly fishing since 2001.  We know the fish, often by name, as we’ve been fishing the Owyhee for over 40 years!  We are licensed, insured and permitted with the BLM, Oregon State Marine Board and hold CPR and Back county Rescue credentials!

Owyhee Wilderness Float

Experience the thrill of topwater fly fishing for smallmouth bass on an Owyhee on a 5 day wilderness float trip down the Owyhee. The NY times calls the Owyhee the “Grand Canyon of Oregon”. This 5 day float is not for the faint hearted, the Owyhee float above the Owyhee Reservoir is rugged country with no cell service, no roads, no people. Launching from Rome, Oregon this wilderness trip takes you into some of the most beautiful landscapes in Eastern Oregon and even the Western US. To top it off,, “A bass every cast” is not unheard of.

Owyhee Wilderness Scenic Float

New for the 2015 season we are introducing a scenic float trip on the Upper Owyhee River. The Owyhee River from Rome, Oregon to Birch Creek, Oregon is a 3 day float trip. There is a small window for floating the river due to the water levels. This trip is perfect for those who want to get away from it all! There are no roads for almost 49 miles. There is no cell service, no Internet connection…no people! Normally, our guided adventures are geared toward fly fishing. This particular adventure is geared toward floating, camping, photography and relaxation. Guests are welcome to fish; although they will be responsible for their own fishing gear and tackle. Let us float you down the river, take care of the meals, and set up camp. You can sit back, relax, and enjoy. A New York Times article in 2008 calls the Owyhee “The Grand Canyon of Oregon.” Floating along the Owyhee River in Oregon, you will pass through astonishing high desert canyon lands with thousand foot rhyolite cliffs and sand castle rock formations. Visitors will marvel at the variety of birds and mammals, including river otters, bighorn sheep and golden eagles. This trip is a photographers dream!

With Dreams On the Fly

My dad and I just went on a fly fishing trip with Andrew Catt for Father’s Day weekend. We had an AMAZING time. Andrew was so patient with us as we had little to no experience fly fishing prior to this trip. We would HIGHLY recommend Dreams on the Fly for your next guided fly fishing outing. Looking forward to getting a chance to go out again!!

Andrew Catt guided myself, my son, and my father-in-lawn on the Owyhee River in Late May. What a great experience! I had never fly fished before, but Andrew was very patient and informative. His patience with my 9 year old son was outstanding! Andrew had to run around constantly helping us to get on the fish, teach us, tie lines, etc. and he never missed a beat. We were fortunate enough to add some nice sized brown trout to the experience and the beautiful scenery of the Owyhee Mountains. It was a trip I we will never forget, and it is all mainly due to Mr. Andrew Catt and Dreams on the Fly.
