Fall River


fall riverFall River is a beautiful spring-fed stream flowing through rolling pine forest. It is open to fly fishing only. Clear and cold, it springs full-blown from the ground about 2 miles northwest of Pringle Falls and winds it’s way northeast to join the Deschutes River. Fall River is an outstanding contributor of brown trout to the Deschutes River and provides excellent winter habitat for numerous species. Its pristine water supports a productive hatchery and contributes invaluable water quality to the Deschutes system. Legal size brook and rainbow trout, stocked several times a year, merge with the naturally reproducing brook, brown, and rainbow trout. Native whitefish inhabit the river below the falls.

There is a campground, a trail, and a Guard Station which can be rented along Fall River.
