EAST LAKE

East Lake the most consistent lake for fly fishing in our region. With good callibaetis action all summer and fall, good leech, chironomid, terrestrial, and streamer fishing. Season runs from the last Saturday in April to October 31st but usually opens late due to snow blockage on the road.

THREE CREEKS LAKE

The closest lake to the shop, Three Creeks is a gem! A high mountain lake with plenty of trout and good hatches. Season runs from the last Saturday in April to October 31st but usually opens late due to snow blockade on the road in.

$375 for half day one or two anglers.


DAVIS LAKE

Davis offers the best largemouth Bass fishing in Central Oregon on a fly rod but is also a good trout lake. The Lake is open all year but is limited to access when snow blocks the road. The Best fishing is in the Spring after ice out but it stays good all season. In the Summer plan on early morning or late evening assaults for the best Bass action.

$500 for one or two anglers.


WICKIUP RESERVOIR

Central Oregon’s 2nd largest reservoir has some amazing fishing opportunities. Sheeps Bridge area is one of our favorites but there are all kinds of coves to explore on this great lake. Season runs from the last Saturday in April to October 31st, except Sheeps Bridge area which closes on September 30th.

$500 for one or two anglers.


CRANE PRAIRIE RESERVOIR

CP is another Bass/Trout Combo lake. This lake was created in the path of several rivers and creeks (Snow Cr., Quinn River, Cultus River, Deschutes River & Rock Cr.) and all the channel’s have good fishing. Crane is famous for its skeleton forests and the fish use the old trees for hide outs and feeding. This is the best chironomid fishing in the area and a 10 pound fish is likely. Season runs from the last Saturday in April to October 31st.

$500 for one or two anglers.


LAVA LAKE

LITTLE LAVA LAKE

Little Lava is a great lake for fly fishing and is protected from the weather a bit more than the big lakes. So, if it’s blowing too hard on the big lakes Little Lava is a great back up. The Rainbows here are hard fighters and the fishing is often good. Season runs from the last Saturday in April to October 31st.

$500 for one or two anglers.


HOSMER LAKE

This is one of the most special lakes in Central Oregon. Stocked with Rainbow, Cutthroat and Brookies along with Atlantics this unique fishery is a special place to add to your list. Plenty of good dry fly fishing here with the best evening caddis hatches of any of the Cascade Lakes.

Season runs all year but is limited to winter conditions from November to May.

CLEAR LAKE

Oregon’s coldest lake and also one of the most unique, Clear Lake was formed by a volcanic eruption that blocked the McKenzie River. We are allowed to guide Clear Lake only on weekday’s. Easy access from the shop and good summer fishing.
