Availability - Owyhee River, Oregon
November 7, 2021
Experience one of Oregon's finest dry fly fishing destinations.
If you have heard of trout fishing in Oregon, chances are you have heard about the Owyhee River. Tucked away in eastern Oregon, not far from Boise, Idaho, the Owyhee river flows discreetly through desert rim rock and sage. It is a smaller river conducive to walk and wade days, and its honey-colored brown trout are commonly known to be larger than average, most often coming in between 14 and 17 inches with great opportunity for considerably larger fish. Our friends and dedicated guides with Deschutes River Anglers have, in the past, offered a comfortable and simple camp set up a short walk from the river's edge.
The Owyhee has a long season and a rich progression of vibrant insect hatches. The seasonal highlights are the skwala stonefly hatch of March and early April, along with the terrestrial season occurring mid-August through September. This year they have partnered with the Owyhee River Ranch, a rustic and comfortable lodge that allows for fast access to fishing, warm showers, and dry beds at night.
