Oregon Guided Fly Fishing Trips

The Caddis Fly Angling shop offers a number of guided trips. Read below for descriptions and photos, and call the shop to schedule your trip: 541-342-7005.

McKenzie River Trout Fishing

The McKenzie River offers great fly fishing for wild trout almost year round. Throughout the spring, big wild redside rainbows cruise the lower river looking for big stoneflies and March Brown mayflies. Dry fly action can be hot, even when the weather is still cold. Lots of cutthroats throughout this section as well.

Through the summer, anglers will head upriver to the rapid strewn, classic sections of the McKenzie. Anglers will ply the turquoise, turbulent waters with an expert oarsman. You just might catch Bigfoot.

Fall on the McKenzie 2016

Fall is a fantastic time to fish the McKenzie, as foliage changes, summer crowds thin and the October Caddis hatch begins going off. It’s also the time of year we host the Annual McKenzie River Two-Fly Tournament, because it’s often when you can catch your biggest trout of the year.

Full Day for Two: $600
Mid Summer Trip: 6 hours with lunch $475
Half Day Specials Spring and Fall only $425

Middle Fork Willamette Trout Fishing

The Upper Willamette River is an excellent option for fly fishing for native trout, flowing out of the springs in the foothills of the Cascades just south of Oakridge, OR. There are some very large, wild fish in the Upper Willamette, and plenty of insect activity. This river has a different character from the McKenzie, but the hatch timing and fishing can be very similar.

Willamette River Steelhead

The Willamette River runs through downtown Springfield and Eugene, and can produce some monster hatchery steelhead throughout the late summer and early fall. The river can be surprisingly gorgeous despite this urban setting, and when the fishing is on, it’s fantastic. Good spey casting water, as well as opportunities to fish for steelhead out of the boat.

Steelhead morning Trip $450 for two, no lunch all gear included.

Oregon Winter Steelhead

Anybody can fish for steelhead when it’s 80-degrees and sunny, but if you want to catch the big boys, you have to fish the winter run. Winter steelheading can be amazing — dripping coastal rainforests, steelie-green water, chromed out fish sliding in on each incoming tide.

Full Day for Two: $600

Deschutes River

There is nothing better than waking up on a cool, clear morning at camp on the Deschutes River, grabbing a coffee and jumping into your waders. Your spey rod is already strung up, and you know you’ve got the first shot at the run below. You deserve at least one morning like that in your life.

North Umpqua Steelhead

So how many times are you going to get skunked before you break down and hire somebody? Let’s face it — there are a whole lot of giant steelhead in the North Umpqua River, and I’ll be damned if I can catch any of them. But the Caddis Fly Shop employs guides who know the river’s fabled runs and fat wild steelies by name. Seriously, save yourself years of heartache and just book a guide for this one.

    I am planning a fishing trip next year around Memorial Day weekend. I plan on having between 5-8 guys with me on this trip. I would like to know some recommendations as far as where we should go during this trip, the best guided tour options (amateur fly fisherman’s), and the best place to lodge. Please let me know if you can help.

    Will you do any off-shore fishing for Silvers & ect in 2014

    I’m interested in fishing for winter steelhead on the North Umpqua. I’m fairly new to spey rods but I got a lot of practice in Late October on the Deschutes and even landed one. I’m pretty good with the Snap T but not the double spey. I have fly fished many times for steelhead so I’m used to the conditions. More than likely it would just be me coming up from So Cal to fish for 2-3 days. Please let me know if there are any opportunities this winter. Thanks

    I am interested in a steelhead guide trip near Eugene OR between November 27-30. It would be two one-half day float trips. Please contact me with details. Thank you.

    Hi- I will be staying in Eugene the first week of September. Have done a little research and the consensus seems to be that the McKenzie and Willamette are better suited for floating/ jet boating rather than wading – would you agree?
    I have never fished for steelhead or used a Spey rod (been fly fishing for 5 years, primarily in Colorado, with a few trips in Oregon).
    Do you have openings for a full day trip that week? If so, what would it cost for one angler?
    Thanks, Mark

    My good friend Michael Gorman advised me to contact Jay Nickolas for a recommendation on a sea run cut trip planning for this summer in Nehalem bay/ river. I believe in planning ahead. But Jay seems hard to find outside of this website, so I thought I would leave a message here. I have some specific ideas. Flexible on dates and times.
