Just 45 minutes east of the shop is the Crooked River. This small desert fishery is one of the best places to learn about fly fishing. The Crooked is our favorite river to take newer anglers or those that would rather not commit to the longer Deschutes trips.
Our Half Day walk & wade (4 hour) guided trips are one of the best settings to enjoy Central Oregon fishing.
Our patient guide will work hard for you putting you onto some fish as well as teaching you about the area and the sport of fly fishing.
Our Crooked River Half-Day day trip starts about 8am. We will meet you at Fin & Fire Fly Shop. After picking up any last-minute items and getting outfitted with waders and boots if needed, your guide will lead you out to the Crooked River in separate vehicles. The drive time is about 45 minutes and leads you through the town of Prineville and up the scenic Crooked River corridor. Upon arrival to the river your guide will get you situated with an appropriate light trout set-up and rig-up your flies while giving as much instruction as needed to get you casting well and into some fish. We will be fishing for the native Crooked River rainbow trout and whitefish and your guide will help you land fish caught. If you would like a picture, let your guide know as we practice catch and release on this river.
Around 1pm we will wrap it up for the day and be able to tell stories of the fish caught and the fish lost on the way back to town.
Although most trips will start at 8am, we are happy to change the start time to accommodate your needs or the current fishing situations.
