Grindstone Lakes Invitation
Fly and Field Outfitters’ guide service manager, Griff Marshall is hosting a trip to the world famous stillwater playground, Grindstone Lakes this June and you’re invited! We have secured three days in mid-June for prime fishing, good weather and long days to explore the ranch’s five unbelievable lakes. If three days of wide-open spaces, disconnection from society and killer fishing sounds good, read on! Griff has been really lucky over these last thirty-five years to fish a ton of private water, and Grindstone is easily his favorite. This is a very special place, remarkable for its remoteness, stunning beauty and truly epic fishing. Typically, you’d have to get a group together to experience Grindstone, but with this trip it can be just you, or bring a buddy. If you’re familiar with this place, very little prodding should be necessary! If not, let us show you a few pictures…
Dates: June 16-18. Arrive around 9am on the 16th, depart by 5pm on the 18th

Where is the Ranch: Grindstone is located in the middle of the GI Ranch east of Bend, OR. This is a massive ranch, almost a quarter million acres with the grazing leases. Grindstone is smack dab in the middle. From downtown, the camp is approximately 90 miles and the drive takes around two hours. You can go out highway 20 towards Burns or take the Post/Paulina Rd east from Prineville.

Staff on the Ranch: Neal Burrell, the new holder of the fly-fishing lease on the ranch, will be on hand to help with which lake to fish, when and how, and will make sure everyone is looked after from first light till last. He’s been working on these lakes for a decade and has them as dialed as anyone. Neal and his staff are accomplished wilderness chefs and takes pride in serving up delicious meals in an extraordinarily remote, beautiful surroundings.
