The Deschutes River is known world-wide for its fly-fishing, with at least 10 different stretches along this 252-mile-long river. It is also home to enormous populations of Rainbow and Brown Trout. Whether you’re after the elusive Steelhead or the native Redband Trout, your experience will be enriched by the beauty and majesty of the river as it flows north toward the Columbia River. The best fish populations are upstream from Bend, south to Benham Falls and downstream to Steelhead Falls (west of Redmond). The lower 100 miles of the Deschutes River (the Lower Deschutes is actually the north portion of the river) is famous for blue-ribbon trout and Steelhead.
Special regulations are in effect along various stretches of the Deschutes River. All fishing is done while wading, and fishing from a boat is not allowed. Visit the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife website and consult the local fly shops for fishing regulations, permits, and details.
