Maupin is a high-desert community located on a bluff overlooking the Wild & Scenic Deschutes River canyon. It is famous for its world class fly fishing for both rainbow trout (called Redsides) and steelhead...and for white water rafting.

Maupin is 120 miles east of Portland via the scenic Columbia River Gorge, 45 miles south of The Dalles and 90 miles north of Bend. In addition to the outdoor activities, there is a very nice market, restaurants, bars and several rafting and fishing operations.

Access to Mt Hood (year around skiing at Timberline, Alpine Slide at Government camp, backpacking, etc.), central Oregon, eastern Oregon, the Columbia Gorge, historic Shaniko, Native Americans dip netting for salmon at nearby Sherars Falls, and the Lewis and Clark Museum at The Dalles ensure plenty of possible exploratory side trips.

Roadside anglers can access 30 miles of river, 5 miles upstream and 25 miles downstream from the house. There is no direct access to the river from the house property because of a high bank and thick vegetation.

Whitewater rafters can 'put-in' 5 miles above the house and raft for 5 or more miles, enjoying Class 2, 3 and 4 rapids thru the fastest drop on the lower Deschutes. If you're not an experienced rafter, there are several rafting companies in town you can hire to guide your group.

Do-it-yourself or single to multi-day guided float trips are available thru the un-roaded sections of the river, both for whitewater enthusiasts and anglers.

Mid-summer weather is hot and dry with temperatures typically ranging between 50-60 at night and 85 to 100 during the day. Summer water temps are usually in the 60s.

During spring and fall, cooler air and water temperatures prevail.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: The Deschutes River is one of the most famous fisheries in the lower 48 states, year around trout fishing plus surface orientated steelhead attract fly anglers the world over and as avid fly fisherman it is what drew us to the river as well! The consistent climate, easy access from Portland (only 3-stop signs once you enter the interstate) and a friendly relaxed small-town atmosphere is a strong magnet. Living alongside the rivers 'white noise' is relaxing and calming, plus it has a cooling effect. Wildlife frequently observed include deer, otter, osprey, night hawks, swallows and quail. Life is slow and and peaceful here.

Why the Owner Chose Maupin, OR, USA:
Riverside property is scarce on the Deschutes River. There are only a handful of such properties in Maupin and there is something special about living 'riverside.' It is the sound of rushing water, wildlife, the Milky Way at night, yet being close to town and easy access to the the city. Juniper, sage, high desert, the beautiful basalt cliffs of the Deschutes River Canyon and the fresh smell of the river will ignite your senses! We can pretty much guarantee you won't want to leave the deck all day and at night we love to sit on the deck and watch the stars come out!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The sound of the river, beautiful trout and steelhead and the wonderful climate are some of the reasons we love this location. Sunshine most every day and clear skies at night make this a perfect spot to relax and unwind! Reach Maupin via the beautiful Columbia Gorge and enjoy the scenic drive, waterfalls, fruit orchards and wineries and go home via Mt Hood to get a taste of Oregon's tallest mountain and some beautiful alpine scenery! You will see some of Oregon's most unique geography and get a glimpse of what makes this area so special!
