Get To Fishing In the Deschutes River And More

If you are an avid angler, then you should probably get to know the great rivers in Central Oregon. You’ll find that these bubbling rivers are full of challenging fish to catch and fantastic scenery to see. The best place to make your home base when you are fishing in the Deschutes River is in one of our Village Properties at Sunriver vacation rentals. Here are several ideal fishing rivers in Central Oregon that shouldn’t be missed, such as the Deschutes River and others.

Fall River

Fall River is a spring-fed river that moves through a beautiful pinewood forest. This river is only open for fly fishing. If you follow the river down far enough, it will join the Deschutes River. When it comes to fish that you can catch here, you can expect to snag some brook, brown, rainbow trout, and whitefish.

Deschutes River

This is probably one of the best locations for fishing in Oregon. Deschutes River is the perfect place to learn how to fish or test your skills if you are a seasoned angler. Rainbow trout and steelhead are two of the most well-known fish you will find here. You might also hook some whitefish, bull trout, and more. Even if you aren’t planning to fish, this is a destination that shouldn’t be missed when you visit Oregon.

Crooked River

Crooked River is another excellent river packed with whitefish and rainbow trout. This is a great starter river if you are eager to learn more about fishing. Because of the abundance of bugs in the area, the fish are easier to fool, making them easy to catch. Even if you aren’t new to fishing, Crooked River can be a great place to boost your fishing confidence.
