Williamson River, Southern Oregon Fly Fishing

Williamson River

The Williamson River is a blue-ribbon trout stream divided in two sections. Although each section can give exciting challenges, they can also pay out with hefty rewards.

The lower Williamson River is where most of our trips take place, and the average catch is between 3 and 6 pounds, with 10+ pound fish frequently testing your drag.

With prolific hatches of Hexagenia's, BWO's, PMD's, Mahogany Duns and Trico's, it's no wonder these fish grow to such proportions. Even with all these hatches, it's difficult for a trophy Williamson River Redband to resist a leech or baitfish imitation swinging through the current.

The Upper Williamson River is distinctly different than the lower part of the river, but the fishing can be just as exciting. The Redband Rainbow Trout are slightly smaller in size, but the Brook Trout are just as willing to slurp down your Hexagenia or Black Drake imitation. This is a secluded walk-in fishery with amazing scenery, best accessed by boat.
