    In the heart of Oregon's High Desert lies a premier private fly fishing destination of five pristine private lakes. Each lake ranges from 20-70 acres and provides a range of aquatic terrain that allows for the best fly fishing around. You will catch beautiful rainbows from 1 1/2 pounds to over 10 lbs. Most average 3-6 pounds. An experienced angler could easily catch and release fish that number in the double-digit range.

    The Grindstone Lakes professional guides and staff take your fly fishing visit to new heights while providing expert advice at the fly rod, transportation from lake to lake, or simply fixing a fine meal; your positive experience at Grindstone Lakes is priority-one.

    With magnificent rainbow trophy trout looking to join the fun, you're almost guaranteed to have a great time fly fishing.

    Direct adventures also offers over 250 miles of famous river fishing for Salmon, Steelhead and Trout with guided multi-day trips. It starts high in the Cascade Mountains, by Lava Lake, then flows north reaching its destination at the mouth of the Columbia River. The Deschutes River is what makes Oregon's fly fishing famous, consisting of three different sections, all featuring their own fishing styles and species. Visit our website for more information.
