There aren't many places in Oregon where you can specifically target Bull Trout - but this is one of them. Large bull trout are the primary target of most fishermen on this section of water. There are two arms that provide good fishing, the Metolius arm and the Deschutes arm with water feeding each river accordingly.
Be sure to check the Fishing Regulations and Emergency Rules for this area.
