Nestled in the Cascade Mountain Range just west of Bend are over 10 quality stillwater fisheries. Couple these unique fly fishing lakes with the nearby streams, creeks, and rivers, and you get a fly fisher’s dream. Located a short drive from downtown Bend, these lakes range from modest to grand in size. One aspect they all share is beauty. When you visit one of these fly fishing treasures, you’ll agree.
A fly fishing trip to one of the Cascade Lakes is best suited for anglers looking for relatively low impact and highly productive outings. Anglers looking for the trophy of a lifetime should look to Crane Prairie. Each summer, more 10-plus pound fish are caught here than any other fishery in Oregon. If you are interested in a positive first fishing experience with your son, daughter, or non-angling spouse, consider a trip to East Lake or Lava Lake. During the peak of the season on either lake, we can practically guarantee they catch some fish.
Full Day Guided Fly Fishing Trips: Your guide will meet you at the designated location at a predetermined time. Packed with everything you’ll need for a successful day of fishing, you’ll travel with your guide to the lake of choice. A full day trip will span 8 hours for fishing, and includes a lake-side BBQ lunch.
Half Day Guided Fly Fishing Trips: Our half-day guided fly fishing trips are the same as our full day guided fly fishing trips, but do not include lunch. A half-day guided fly fishing trip is limited to 4 hours on the water, and guests may be asked to meet their fly fishing guide at the water.
