Catch and Release Fly Fishing at Black Butte Ranch

Located in a scenic locations on the Ranch, Phalarope Lake is a splendid place to learn to fly fish. This is the only lake on the Ranch reserved for fly fishing (we let the wildlife enjoy the others). Barbless hooks and “catch and release” procedures are required. An Oregon fishing license is also needed, available online at Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

During the summer, FREE fly-fishing clinics* are offered through The Fly Fisher’s Place at the Ranch on Saturday mornings. |  June 29-August 31 |  9-10:15am

Fly Rod Rentals* are available through the Lakeside Activity Center (541-595-1282)
$10/hour | $20/half day | $40/full day
Purchase Flies: $3 each

They don’t actually go fishing during the clinic, so a fishing license is not required for the class. If anyone is going fishing on the Lake or around Central Oregon after the clinic, then make sure you are properly licensed. An Oregon fishing license is needed, and can be obtained online at odfw.huntfishoregon.com/customer/catalog.
*Must be 12 years or older 

Guided Fly Fishing

The Central Oregon area draws fly fishers from around the world to test their skill in the area’s pristine waters. The Metolius River, located just five miles northwest of the Ranch, offers challenging fly fishing in an incredible setting. Guided fly-fishing trips are also available through the Fly Fisher’s Place in Sisters. They offer a variety of fly-fishing experiences in the area, as well as Fly Fishing Schools that include all equipment. Float trips are available on the Deschutes, McKenzie and South Santiam rivers. Walk-wade trips are available on the Crooked River, Upper McKenzie and the North Santiam Rivers. Lake Classes on private lakes, including Phalarope Lake at Black Butte Ranch, are also available. Call 541-549-FISH (3474) for reservations and information.
