Fish Tales

Central Oregon is an angler’s dream with more than 100 lakes and 450 miles of pristine rivers and streams. Rainbow, Brown, Brook, Lake, Bull and Cutthroat trout, native Redbands, Kokanee, Atlantic Salmon, Large and Smallmouth Bass are all swimming in waters within an hour’s drive of Sunriver. For many months during the year, both Salmon and Steelhead make their return trip from the Pacific Ocean to the lower Deschutes River.

Sunriver is home to several experienced fly fishing guides who have the local knowledge to provide you with an unforgettable fishing experience.

The Hook Fly Shop/Cascade Guides & Outfitters, located in The Village at Sunriver, and the Sunriver Fly Shop, in the Sunriver Business Park, have been assisting fly fishers for more than 30 years. In addition to offering the best hand tied flies, they both offer fly fishing equipment,  guide services and insider information on where and how to catch the elusive trout or Kokanee. Garrison’s Guide Service, who features family friendly pontoon boats, offers guide services for both spin fishing and fly fishing.  Camp Abbot Trading Company, located in the  Sunriver Business Park, carries a complete line of fishing tackle and bait. In addition, the stores can assist you with fishing regulations, fishing licenses and Northwest Parking Passes, which are required at most of the fishing locations.

Sunriver Anglers Club

The Sunriver Anglers Club was founded in 1977 as a way for outdoor and fishing enthusiasts to protect our natural environment, conserve our resources, educate and encourage new fishermen and women, enjoy outdoor activities and of course to exchange fish stories.

The Sunriver Anglers have invested the club’s energy and resources to improve sport fishing in Central Oregon, support organizations working on stabilizing water flows on the Upper Deschutes and Little Deschutes rivers, remove invasive fish from our high lakes, and partner with federal, state, county and other groups.

The Sunriver Anglers Club holds public monthly meetings on subjects such fly patterns, fly selection, winter steelhead fishing, fishing tactics and habitat restoration projects.
