The Crooked River is a special resource, having a 100% native fish population, and is located just 40 minutes outside of Bend, Oregon. The Crooked River has an incredibly robust population of Redside Rainbow Trout, slightly smaller than those in the Lower Deschutes River, but still famous for their fight.

Full & Half Day Wade Trips on the Crooked River are filled with both nymph and dry fly action and are suited particularly well for “never-ever” and “seasoned” fly fishers alike. Providing those with less experience with the opportunity to hook MANY trout throughout the day and experienced anglers with the opportunity to refine their technique, the Crooked River is sure to impress. With some of the most dramatic scenery in Central Oregon, the Crooked River Canyon is awe inspiring in and of itself, not to mention the HOT fishing! Your guide will prepare a delicious riverside meal for your enjoyment as you spend a day on the river.

A short journey, just a 1-hour drive east of Bend, will take you to a very special place – the Crooked River tailwater. Beginning at the meeting of the South Fork Crooked River and ... moreBeaver Creek, the river flows beneath the shadows of the Ochoco Mountains and Ochoco National Forest, flows into the Prineville Reservoir then turns north gathering several small tributaries before emptying into Lake Billy Chinook.

Like other rivers in this area, 18 miles of the Crooked are designated as a National Recreational River. Once home to migrating anadromous Chinook salmon, steelhead trout and Pacific lamprey, the combined forces of dams, irrigation and low water caused those populations to disappear. Today the non-migratory, redband trout is the only remaining native species left in the Crooked. That said, they appear to be thriving and sections of this river are considered by veteran anglers to have the best redband fishing in all of Oregon.

Most anglers consider the 7-mile area below Bowman Dam and the outlet of the Prineville Reservoir, the top place to fish and one of the most productive trout waters in the state. Cool water releases from the dam keep the water at about 50 degrees year round, and fish counts range from 1,000 to 8,000 per mile.

The river, open year round, is managed as a wild trout fishery with catch and release restrictions. The Prineville Reservoir however, supports large populations of rainbow, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, catfish, crappie and crayfish and can be fished by boat. Further downstream at the Crooked River Gorge good fishing can also be found but access is limited.
