Fly Fishing in Oregon

When looking for the best fly fishing Oregon has to offer, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Here we’ll cover how best to experience freshwater fly fishing in the Beaver State. Be sure to check out our Oregon Coast article if you’re looking to catch some saltwater fish on the fly.

What type of trip is right for me?

When considering the options for a freshwater trip, you should decide whether you’re looking to fish the Columbia River or one of the rivers and lakes within easy reach of the I-5. Portland is a great place to be both for fishing and in general, so you definitely aren’t missing out if you make it your main fishing hub. The rivers to the south are a great option for anyone who’s up for a more private experience off the beaten path.

Half Day Trips

Shorter trips are a great way to introduce yourself to the fishery, and still get a taste of all it has to offer. From Steelhead to various Salmon and Sturgeon, there’s plenty of variety wherever you decide to cast your fly. Most guides are flexible when it comes to timing a 4–5 hour trip, and will happily accommodate your schedule.

Full Day Trips

A full day of fishing is the ultimate Oregon fly fishing experience. Now you’ll have plenty of time to fish until you drop. If you’re taking your first steps in the wonderful world of fly fishing, find yourself a local guide who can help you develop your technique. You can target the same species as you would on a shorter trip, but more time usually means better results.

How to Prepare

Most professional fly fishing guides will provide you with fly gear if you don’t have any, but it’s always best to check before the trip. You usually need to bring any extra gear like waders on your own, and that also goes for a freshwater fishing license.

There’s something biting whenever you decide to go, so come on down for some of the most memorable fly fishing in the States!

It seems to be a day by day thing, the weather did not allow us to go out on the ocean, we fished the river instead, it was still a great time.

Fishing season is better in the middle of July than the beginning of July, (early July is too early in the season to catch salmon). It is a beautiful area to fish in. Be sure to dress in layers and bring a sack lunch.
