Wickiup Reservoir

Holding several different species of fish, Wickiup reservoir is most renowned for its dense population of Trophy Brown trout. Incredible numbers of large German Brown trout inhabit Wickiup’s vast waters as well as the largest Largemouth Bass in Central Oregon. She can definitely be fickle and moody at times but, given the right day, she is as good as it gets.

    Central Oregon weather can be unpredictable.  We recommend bring some layers, including a light rain jacket.  Sunscreen, snacks, drinks, sunglasses and a hat.  During the peak summer months it can be close to 100 degrees, hydration is key along side skin protection.

    We will provide all the flies, leader, tippet, rods and reels, but you are welcome to bring your own as well.

    The drive from the shop to Crane Prairie is about 40 minutes.  Same for Wickiup.  East lake is about an hour drive.  The upper Deschutes River is about 30-50 minutes depending on where we fish that day.  Crooked River is about 1.5 hours to get to the river from Sunriver.
