Fishing the Upper Deschutes River
This section of the Deschutes River which starts from the source that starts at Little Lava Lake is a diverse section that spans all the way to Benham Falls. If you're looking to fish for big browns, try the section between Wickiup Reservoir and Crane Prairie Reservoir - locals refer to this area as Sheep's Bridge. The uppermost section of the Deschutes River is well known for holding the state's record for Brook trout.
