There are abundant opportunities for fly fishing in Central Oregon, whether you’re vacationing to the area or you’re living here year round. According to Game & Fish magazine, the key to catching the blue ribbon trout you’ve always dreamt about starts with knowing the 3 W’s—what they eat, when they eat, and where to find them.
Anglers travel from near and far to fly fish on the Deschutes in Sunriver, one of the nation’s top fly fishing destinations. The Upper Deschutes originates in the Cascade Mountains and offers a large ribbon of cold, clean water that is home to a wide variety of fish, including rainbow trout, brown trout, bass, and steelhead.
Sunriver and Surrounding Areas offer Miles of Rivers, Bountiful Lakes, and Gorgeous Views
Anglers looking for an ideal home base while visiting Central Oregon can look to the resort community of Sunriver. Offering miles of grassy banks, plentiful riffles, and gorgeous Cascade Mountain vistas, the rivers and lakes in the Sunriver area are not to be missed. There are hundreds of miles of rivers and over 30 lakes located within 45-minutes from Sunriver. Additionally, the well-known Paulina Lake and Wickiup Reservoir provide great trout fishing throughout the season.
Local Favorites – Deschutes River and Fall River
The Deschutes is over 250-miles long, which can sound overwhelming for those fishing for a weekend. However, top fly fishing destinations are located on both the Upper and Middle Deschutes River, making them easy-to-access from Sunriver.
Fall River is another favorite for Central Oregon natives. The river is around 10 miles long and flows through a pine forest, eventually emptying into the Deschutes between Sunriver and La Pine. The scenic area showcases gentle, rolling hills as well as volcanic cinder buttes. The Fall River is home to rainbow, brook, and brown trout.

The fishing guide service is operated out of the Hook Fly Shop and offers extensive licensing allowing them to fish on more waters than other nearby fishing guide services.
