It can be difficult to know where to go and what to use when you're new to fly fishing so we've put together a platform that makes it as easy as possible to find a spot to fish, know what to expect and easily start fishing without disappointment. If you're a seasoned vet or fresh to the fly fishing community our river and lake pages make it easy to find spots and catch fish. We've spent a lot of time on the water talking to fishermen and guides to create a platform that shares information for fly fishing that can be hard to come by if you aren't sure where to start.
Our river and lake pages are designed with ease of use in mind. Each page includes one or more fishing maps with clearly marked access points. To make directions easier, the Get Directions link will connect you to google maps on mobile and desktop. Here's an example of a map that we put together for the Lower Deschutes River in Central Oregon.
We've spent a lot of time exploring local waters to find spots that produce fish. Our fishing maps and river/lake information includes everything you'll need to plan your next fishing trip. Every page includes general overview of each body of water, fishing regulations, and up to date weather. Our weather forecasts are up to date and on-demand so you don't have to guess or look for weather reports in town's near the water you want to fish.
Fishing maps are great, but they aren't everything - what to use and local guide advice is just as important. The flies listed on each page are options for you, mostly to expose you to flies you may not be aware of. Other details on our pages include fishing spots within 15 miles, stocking schedules, and guide reports from the local fly shops.
If you fish frequently and want to share information back to the community we'd love to have you! We provide tools that let you find fish and share your experience. Join our community today to upload your own fishing reports to share with the community!

It's inevitable that fly fishermen will eventually start tying flies - it's fun, but getting started is sometimes difficult. The sections below will give you insight into tying flies, finding patterns that fit your skill level and getting step by step videos on how to tie them. We believe that quality and clarity are two important factors when teaching which is why we've decided to let the people who are good at fly tying videos do what they're best at. We believe that Tightlines Productions puts out incredibly high quality and clear tutorials on tying the best patterns.
