Outdoor Life Names Bend One of Top Fishing Towns

Bend, Oregon is known as a premier destination for outdoor activities (and beer), consistently making top 10 lists for everything from golf to skiing.  This month Outdoor Life Magazine ranked Bend at #8 on their list of the best hunting and fishing towns in the United States.

While there are plenty of hunters in Central Oregon, fishing is what Bend is recognized for by Outdoor Life.  Specifically, access to great fishing in local streams, rivers and lakes.  The fishing here is so good that the 2012 Fly Fishing National Championship will be held here this year October 18 – 20.

Come discover the great fishing available in Central Oregon.  Then when you realize you don’t want to leave, give us a call and we’ll help you find a the perfect house for you.  Whether it’s a cabin in the woods, a second home in one of the resorts or a craftsman on the West side there is something here for everyone.
