Fishing in Bend

The quality and variety of fishing opportunities in Central Oregon are unmatched. Anywhere. High country lakes beckon with trophy brown, rainbow and lake trout, as well as large-mouth bass. Land-locked sockeye salmon attain exceptional size in some lakes alongside their Atlantic salmon brethren. The legendary Deschutes River winds through magnificent forests and courses through the heart of Bend before sliding north to the Columbia. All its 252 miles represent prime trout habitat. Smaller rivers like the Fall, Crooked, Metolius and Ana provide an exceptional range of fishing adventures. You may need to give up golf (just kidding!).
