Year Round Opportunities For Fly Fishers
Welches, Oregon is positioned to give the best-centralized access to a region offering world-class fly fishing opportunities.

We are located half way between the North Pole and the equator.  This gives us the perfect climate for trout, salmon and steelhead fly fishing every month of the year. Here is incredible diversity. Within a 100-mile radius, the landscape is divided by the Cascade Mountains.  The west half is rain forest.  The east half is desert.  Elevations reach from sea level to above the tree line.  There are lakes, rivers and streams in all these divergent climate zones.    And all are playgrounds for fly fishers.

The mighty Columbia River is to our north.  The world famous Deschutes River is an easy drive to the east. Lesser-known rivers such the Clackamas, Hood, Klickitat, Wind and our own home water the Sandy River offer solitude and prolific runs of salmon and steelhead.  Within our village itself, are nearly 100 miles of small mountain streams that offer wild trout fishing to fly fishers of all experience levels. Many of our streams lie within areas of true ancient rain forests.

Most are in pristine ecological condition, and have good populations of both rainbow and cutthroat trout.  These wild fish are protected by catch and release regulations. There are also many lakes and reservoirs in our region that are regularly stocked with hatchery trout from 8 to 12-pounds that you can keep. The big draw for fly fishers in our area is steelhead fishing.  We are in lower Columbia River basin.  No other region in the world offers the diversity of steelhead runs that ours does. 

Welches, Oregon contains the amenities that make fishing this region comfortable: great shops, professional fishing guides, unique dining, quiet rooms and a myriad of camping opportunities.
