SUNRIVER ANGLERS

FISHING - CONSERVATION - EDUCATION

FISHING  Our members are eager to share their knowledge, experience, and enjoyment of angling with all levels of anglers. We host a variety of outings and fishing trips to nearby lakes and streams, giving members an opportunity to learn how and where to fish in our bountiful area.

Recently, the Sunriver Anglers have sponsored and lead outings to Fall River, the Upper and Lower Deschutes River, East Lake, Hosmer Lake, Lake Billy Chinook, South Twin Lake, Crane Prairie and Wickiup Reservoirs.

Some of the other club member outings have included fishing Diamond and Pronghorn Lakes in Southern Oregon, Pyramid Lake in Northern Nevada, fishing for Salmon and Steelhead on the Lower Umpqua and in Winchester Bay on the Oregon Coast, and fly fishing for Bonefish and Giant Trevally as far away as Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean.

CONSERVATION  The Sunriver Anglers provides a number of hands-on opportunities that club members can participate in to help preserve and improve the environment we enjoy so much.  Since 1977, Sunriver Anglers has invested our club’s energy and resources in improving sport fishing in Central Oregon, supporting organizations working toward stabilizing water flows on the Middle and Upper Deschutes River, removing evasive fish from our local lakes, providing scholarships to local students pursuing degrees in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Environmental Sciences, and partnering with Federal, State, County, and other groups.

EDUCATION  Another pillar of our mission is to provide educational opportunities for local school children to learn about fish habitat, basic fishing skills, water safety, and the principles of stewardship.  From co-sponsoring the Kokanee Karnival in Shevlin Park, Bend, to leading hands-on classroom instruction that includes raising fertilized eggs-to-fry followed by their release into local waters, to hosting hundreds of kids at Free Fishing Day, we’re committed to educating the current and next generation of anglers.  Members meet each month to learn about fishing waters in and around Central Oregon, usually followed by a club outing to put the skills and tactics learned to active practice.
