Deschutes River Fly Fishing – Steelhead – Rainbow Trout

Riviere des Chutes (River of the Falls)

The Deschutes River begins its journey at Little Lava Lake in Oregon’s Cascade Mountains.

It flows north to the Columbia River for 240 miles, and is typically broken into three sections – upper, middle and lower. The community of Bend, Oregon, is located at the end of the upper section and the beginning of the middle Deschutes.

Each section of the Deschutes River has its own, unique fishing opportunities.

The upper Deschutes fishery consists of mainly brown, brook trout and the native Redside rainbow trout. The middle Deschutes, flowing north of Bend, boasts populations of brown trout and resident rainbows.

The Deschutes River’s lower section, flowing from Pelton Dam to the Columbia River, is Oregon’s premiere fishery. The lower river has world-class fishing for native Redside rainbows as well as a steelhead.
