Oregon Fishing Opportunities

Fly fishing for shad near Portland Oregon

Oregon is known for it's salmon, trout and steelhead fishing but other fishing opportunities abound.  What about other fish?  For anglers new to the region there are a vast amount of under utilized fisheries in this state. Here are a few photos from a couple hours of fishing in July with Water Time Outfitters guides Rob Crandall and Kenny Kiley.

Definitely not our favorite species- like steelhead and trout but today's regulation change by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife which will essentially closes all Oregon streams and rivers to fishing after 2 pm because of drought conditions harsh impacts to our wild fish makes us think about other fishing options.

  1. Carp is king in Europe, smallmouth not a lesser species in some parts our country and we have a trophy fishery in smallies. Big Bluegill on a fly are a kick.
