Private Bass Lake


Private Bass Lake         A nice change of pace

As great as the fishing is on the Deschutes, there are those times when it can be not so forgiving when it comes to “catching”. Yeah, it’s okay if you spend a “therapeutic” day on the river when you didn’t catch many fish but it was just great to be on the water.


However, sometimes, we all like to have some action! So how does fishing for Large Mouth Bass and Bluegill in a small lake sound to you? My family owns this lake so obviously I have exclusive access.

The setting is beautiful and the quality of these fish are surprising. The size of the Large Mouth Bass range from 1 to 5 pounds, and take top water or wet fly patterns. The bluegill are also really nice, ranging from 6 to 12 inches and are really healthy.     

Cost is $125.00 per rod, 4 angler limit. Private lake access and fishing is by appointment only, and is accompanied by your guide and host, John Smeraglio.

Anglers are required to use single point barbless hooks. Non motorized personal floating devices are acceptable. Such as: Float Tubes, V boats, or Pontoon Boats with a 10 foot maximum length.

During fire danger season, smoking is only allowed in your floating device on the lake.
