Bull Bend Boating Site

Area Status: Open

The best population of stream-inhabiting German brown trout in the state lives in the Deschutes River below Wickiup Reservoir. Highly accessible and easy to drift, the river changes dramatically below Wickiup Dam to become a slow, meandering, powerful body of water.

There is a campground at this site.
