If you have an interest in fly fishing Oregon’s waters, conjuring a more perfect area than Bend for chasing trout and steelhead is difficult to do. Here in Central Oregon, fly fishing is a way of life for the simple reason that there’s just so much of it at our fingertips. From the smallest streams to big rivers and lakes of all sizes, we have an amazing variety to choose from. And at Fly & Field Outfitters, as much as we love to fish and explore, our passion is sharing all of these incredible places with our clients. So whether you are a highly experienced, well-traveled angler looking for information and fly selection advice, or a complete beginner hoping to get knee-deep in a trout stream and fool your first fish ever, we are here to help. And somewhere within an hour’s drive there is a water to satisfy your needs. Fly fishing and Oregon go hand in hand. Read on and you will see why.

The rivers are everywhere! Closest to Bend, we have the Deschutes River and Tumalo Creek. Both of these provide trout fishing within ten minutes of Fly & Field on the westside of Bend. A half hour south we have a little spring creek gem called the Fall River. It is beautiful, peaceful, and challenging, and open to fly fishing year ‘round. A bit farther south is the Upper Deschutes. Two stretches of this river offer different but really fun action throughout the summer months. Out east of Bend about forty-five minutes you’ll find the little tail water that is the Crooked River. This one is getting more and more attention for the sheer number of trout. It is a wonderful fishery we are so lucky to have right in our backyard. It is also open year ‘round and fishes awesome all winter. Heading north there is the Middle Deschutes and then the mighty and very famous Lower Deschutes, perhaps the most iconic Central Oregon fly fishing destination. We also have one of the grandest spring creeks in the lower 48 in the Metolious River. This is perhaps the most beautiful river you will ever see. And it fishes as difficult as it is attractive!

We specialize in the Cascade Lakes as well as East Lake. For those not familiar with our area, all around Mt. Bachelor is a string of gorgeous, emerald lakes.
