It’s summer and you want to play. It’s okay; you can with a few reminders:
The reel deal.
The Deschutes River is home to many species of prized native fish and some of the most idyllic fishing spots reside in public Bend parks. In addition to river fishing, the District also features fishing ponds at Pine Nursery and Shevlin Parks that are stocked by Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife.
Licenses: All state angling licenses and regulations apply at all locations.
Bait: Whether bait and/or fly fishing is allowed depends on location. Please check ODFW’s website for more information as regulations may change.
