Fishing Central Oregon

The waters in Central Oregon hold Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Brook Trout, Lake Trout, Bull Trout, Cutthroat Trout, native Redband Trout, Kokanee, Atlantic Salmon, Large and Smallmouth Bass, and for many months out of the year in the lower Deschutes River you can catch both Salmon and Steelhead on their return trip from the Pacific Ocean.

Central Oregon’s crystal clear water and the abundance of natural food and insects produce beautiful and healthy fish. And the fish get big here. Trout over ten pounds are common. The state record Brown Trout is 28.5 pounds (caught at Paulina Lake, 20 minutes from Sunriver), the state record Lake Trout is 40.8 pounds (caught at Odell Lake, 45 minutes from Sunriver) and the state record Bull Trout is 23.2 pounds (caught at Lake Billy Chinook, 60 minutes from Sunriver).

        Sunriver Anglers Club
The Sunriver Anglers Club was founded in 1977 as a way for like-minded people 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.

Members are eager to share their knowledge, experience and enjoyment of angling with all levels of anglers. They host a variety of outings and fishing trips to nearby lakes and streams, giving you an opportunity to learn how and where to fish in our bountiful area.

Meetings are open to the public. For times and locations check the website and Facebook at The Sunriver Anglers are an inclusive and volunteer-led organization. The Sunriver Anglers Club invites full or part time area residents and visitors with an interest in fishing and conservation to join the organization at
