One of the coolest aspects of being an angler in Bend is that we have great rivers to fish all year long and all within an hour of town. The main walk and wade rivers are the Crooked River, Fall River, and the Upper Deschutes River. Depending on the season and what our clients want out of the day, we’ll suggest the best of the three. You really can’t go wrong! And you don’t have to fish all day...we offer both half-day and full-day Walk and Wade Trips. The half-day trip is 4 hours on the water, so you’ll only be gone from town for 5 to 6 hours. Full-day trips offer 8 hours of fishing on the water including a delicious streamside lunch.
As with any of our guided fly fishing adventures, Walk and Wade trips include all of the necessary equipment. So if you’re traveling and don’t want to lug your gear, we've got you covered. All of our client equipment is well-suited for these trips; you just have to show up. If you have the flies you need, great. If not, we have the right bugs at the shop. Our Central Oregon guided fly fishing trips epitomize ease and fun, whether it’s just you, a family, a group of friends, or a corporate outing.

The rivers that Fly & Field Outfitters offers walk and wade fly fishing trips on are all unique, both in regards to the fishing and the scenery. Settings include cool Ponderosa forests, lupine strewn alpine meadows, and dramatic desert canyons. While the Upper Deschutes River has a 6-month fishing season, both the Crooked River and Fall River fish wonderfully all year, including sensational dry fly action on the shortest days of winter! No matter what time of the year you’d like to take a guided Walk and Wade Trip, every day on the water with us is a fun, educational experience filled with scenery that will take your breath away.
Walk and Wade Trips typically begin at our shop on the west side of Bend, Oregon where we kit you out for the day ahead. Meet times vary throughout the season but rarely is extreme “dawn patrol” necessary. Once you have everything you need for the day, you will follow your guide to the river where he or she will supply a cooler with water, Gatorade, soda, and ice. If you’d like to bring some beer, we’ll have the cold cooler waiting for you!
