Fly Fishing Bass with Water Time Outfitters, you’ve found your connection for the best Portland Oregon smallmouth bass fishing. In a state that has it all when it comes to fishing you might find it weird to hear seasoned Oregonians talking about bass fishing; yes, we have salmon, steelhead and great wild trout fishing but bass? Yes! Within one hour drive of Portland- Oregon has some unbelievable smallmouth bass fishing.
In a setting you wouldn’t recognize, rural farmland gives way to the haunts of some of the biggest river bass in the state. This river runs through the most populated parts of Oregon but here; we have found a hidden oasis of fishing that is widely unknown. Hardly a manmade structure is seen on this section of water where deer, bald eagles, blue heron and many other wildlife are found.
For Portland Oregon Smallmouth Bass fishing gear we use fly rods or light spin rods for exciting action on hard fighting smallmouth bass. While other fisheries in the state like the John Day or the Umpqua rivers support great numbers of bass which average around 6” the fish here average much larger. 12-15” smallmouth are common and smallmouth bass up to 20” fish are a possibility everyday with some lunkers larger. Variety is something really interesting here too; not only do we catch smallmouth bass but largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, white crappie, squawfish and an occasional carp!
Portland Oregon Smallmouth bass fishing trips are in our 20’ jet boats with lots of room. We meet at the dock and take you to the best water.

From rocky points and banks to submerged logs, topwater structure and so much more- we fish water that makes serious bass anglers drool. With the jet boat we move from spot to spot focusing on the key zones which hold the most fish.
We provide all the gear to make it easy for you. We can provide fly rods/lines, flies, light spin rods and equipment as needed. You are also welcome to bring your own gear.
