It Doesn't Get Much More Fun Than This
The Crooked River is one of the more fish-filled rivers you’ll ever encounter, but they’re not easy to catch. That’s where a guide comes in. With the right flies, precise rigging, proper technique, and attention to the most productive water, there are certainly plenty of fish to fool. Here at Fly & Field Outfitters, we have fly fishing guides on the Crooked River more days than not. We are familiar with the hatch schedule, what flies are most effective, and which water to focus on. Let us make your day casual and fun. We will pick the flies, set up the rods, and help target the fishiest water!
As far as guided trip options, we host both half-day and full-day Walk and Wade guide trips on the Crooked River. We can take 1-4 anglers per guide. The half-day is four hours on the water, while a full-day trip is eight hours including a streamside BBQ lunch. And, as with all of our guided trips, any and all equipment is included. All you do need to do is show up ready for some fishin’.

The Ultimate In Fly Fishing Fun
A day of guided fly fishing on the Crooked River is a great idea for anglers of all skill levels. If you are experienced, our guides will work with you to refine the exact techniques that have proven most successful. If you’ve never touched a fly rod, we will help get you into a position to make simple presentations that are typically the most productive. Then we’ll land all your fish for you! We specialize in taking beginners to the Crooked River and getting them into fish.
A typical guided fly fishing trip on the Crooked River begins at our shop on the west side of Bend around 9:00 in the morning. We will get you fitted in waders and boots, pick some flies, make sure everyone has their license, and then head out for the river. Our guides have rods that are well suited to this small river. Once out there, your guide will rig up rods while you don waders and boots. We’ll have a brief tutorial session, talking through the intricacies of wading and casting techniques, and then fish! During your time on the river, your guide will constantly make suggestions and rig changes as necessary. If you’ve booked a full day, we will break for a lunch of BBQ chicken or steak, fresh green salad, chips, and salsa finished off with a delicious cookie. And then back into the river with renewed vigor.
