The Deschutes River is the primary waterway in Central Oregon. Originating from its spring-fed headwaters in the Cascade Mountains west of Bend and ending its northward journey at the Columbia River, the Deschutes River offers an astonishing 252 miles of fishable waters. The Deschutes River offers everything from small stream fishing for Oregon’s native Redside Rainbow Trout to epic multi-day float trips for trophy trout and Pacific Steelhead.
While the Deschutes River is Bend’s most renowned river, the Metolius River is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful and challenging fishing destinations in the West. The crystal clear water of the Metolius River bubbles up from springs deep within earth and provides perfect habitat for trophy Redside Rainbow Trout and the coveted trophy Bull Trout that call the Metolius home.
If a cozy spring creek is more your speed, the Fall River should be your destination. Offering year-round angling opportunities, the Fall River will reward the patient angler with beautiful trout and equally as beautiful scenery.
If you’re looking for a pure tailwater fishing experience, the Crooked River cuts a deep gorge into the surrounding countryside and provides exciting tailwater fishing for native Redside Rainbow Trout.
And when you’ve had enough of Bend’s world class rivers, you’ll find a lifetime of gold medal fishing opportunities in the dozens of pristine lakes and reservoirs that surround Bend.
The Old Mill Casting Course is one of the first fly-casting courses in the nation situated along the Deschutes River and several ponds in the Old Mill District. The course challenges fishermen to accurately land a fly under real-life conditions similar to what you would find around Central Oregon fishing hot spots. For example, the Wickiup Station is designed after the renowned Wickiup Reservoir. The casting course is FREE and open to the public.
