It starts high in the Cascade Mountains, by Lava Lake, then flows north through Maupin, OR, reaching its destination at the mouth of the Columbia River. The Deschutes River consists of three different sections, all featuring their own fishing styles and species.
The upper and middle Deschutes River are the sections closest to, and flowing through Bend, Oregon. This is the heart of Bend, Oregon's fly fishing community. If you are on vacation around Central Oregon, you don't want to miss out on this section of the river.
The lower Deschutes River is the last 100 miles leading to the Columbia River. This section is what makes Deschutes River such a sought after fly fishing destination. All 100 miles are home to native Redband Trout, and annual Steelhead and Salmon runs. Anglers from all over the world travel to this section of the river. Some just to have their hand at the infamous dry and stone-fly hatches, and others to swing a Spey rod a returning summer Steelhead.
