Fly Fishing In Central Oregon

Fly fishing in Bend and Central Oregon


For the fly-fishing  enthusiasts who have had enough horse riding for one day or want to fish while the others ride we offer a pristine location that is fun for the one who needs some solo time or for the whole family.

If you are a seasoned fisherperson and from out of town then Vinnie your guide will show you where the secret places are. Vinnie is an energetic guide to spend the day with.

If you are just learning to fish then Vinnie will show you how to cast your line, tie your flies and bring you snacks.

Trout is what you will be searching for and the water is so clear you can see the fish beneath your line.

Locations are in the area south of the quaint western town of Sisters, and situated in a glacial cirque just below the Tan McArthur Rim, developed some 13000 years ago.    The lake is amidst western hemlock old growth forests and is easy to fish from shore or by wading into the shallow waters and luring the rainbow or brook trout onto your fly.


The Metolius river, is another amazing fishery for some of the most awesome fly fishing in Central Oregon. It is designated a Wild and Scenic river.  Starting at the base of Black Butte, the river meanders from the mountainside and travels northward until it joins up with Lake Billy Chinook. It is home to large bull trout, resident rainbow, mountain whitefish and kokanee salmon

The Metolius river is one of the most beautiful rivers in the United States with crystal clear and always cold waters. The Metolius is broken into a couple different sections with 12 miles of the river above Bridge 99 designated for fly fishing only, while the lower section is open for more than just fly fishing – either way this entire stretch is one of the most scenic places to fly fish in Central Oregon.


Todd Lake,   is a small lake nestled in the alpine meadows with Mt. Bachelor in the background.  It offers great fly fishing in Central Oregon near sunset. You might see the fish almost jump into your creel.  Todd Lake is home to stocked brook trout in the 12- to 16-inch size range. Fishing slows down in the summer; when fly fishing use sub-surface wooly buggers or leeches. Many of the standard still water flies work well in this area.


Again, from Quinn Meadows Horse Camp a few miles down the road is Hosmer Lake, which is catch and release only.  Hosmer is a small looking lake from the boat launch area but if you explore the channels and get to the upper lake, you’ll be surprised at how much water there is here. Hosmer is another Fly Fishing in Central Oregon lake and has for years supported a stocked population of Atlantic Salmon and Rainbow trout
