Fall River

A rainbow trout landed on the Fall River.

Starting from rushing springs, the Fall River flows northeast for 8 miles through pine forest and grassy meadows before it empties into the Deschutes River between Sunriver and La Pine. The Fall River is a special place to spend the day, regardless of the quality of the fishing. The gentle stream winds through the Deschutes National Forest. Because the Fall River has consistent temperatures as a spring-fed river, fishing during the late fall and winter typically remains good.
