Deschutes River Outfitters and Guides Association (DROGA)
DROGA is a community of guides and outfitters that was formed to provide a unified voice in order to accomplish the following

  • To meet fellow guides and outfitters in the area
  • To improve the business relationship and communication between guides and outfitters and the BLM
  • To protect and preserve the Deschutes River–the resource upon which we all depend for a living
  • To become part of the BLM decision-making process for the Lower Deschutes River and to keep our membership informed and active in this process
  • To strengthen and improve the industry and support fellow businesses and operators on the Lower Deschutes River

At our June 2, 2019 meeting in Maupin, it was decided that a contribution of $200.00 from those who wished to be a part of this work would go a long way in making these objectives possible.
We have already invested in graveling the boat ramps at both Harpham Flats and Sandy Beach, which were damaged in recent flooding. Your donation will go toward paying for this and future projects.
The Maupin Area Chamber of Commerce will be handling donations collection for the present time, so if you'd like to make a contribution to DROGA's efforts, you may contact Kyle Suenaga at 541.993.1078 or coordinator@maupinoregon.com. Checks should be made out to Maupin Area Chamber of Commerce and mailed to PO Box 220, Maupin, OR 97037.
Any questions or concerns regarding DROGA, membership, or its objectives should still be addressed to Drake Radditz at (503) 449.4886 or drake@fishwithdrake.com.
