Frog Water: Topwater Fly Fishing for Bass in Oregon

There is something very special about wading through the flat, reed-filled water, throwing four inch long, floating frog patterns. The anticipation...waiting for the water to explode, and a football shaped fish to shoot from the water. Bass fishing is awesome, and it's very different compared to the most of the fishing we do; wading through 4-8ft high reeds, finding open, flat-water slots, is the name of the game.

  1. Beautifully filmed and produced– I especially appreciate the soft tones of lake and landscape.

    I am gratified to see a bass video as well done as some of the more worthwhile trout and salmon offerings.

    Bravo and bravo Orvis for including this one.

  2. I’ve been ripping Oklahoma lips like this since ’89.

    Badass video! Thanks for sharing y’all.

  3. This is one of the best videos I have seen. I just started bass fishing with a fly rod and I am hooked.

  4. This looks like it was filmed at Davis Lake here in my beautiful high desert back yard of Central Oregon… if i’m not mistakin!!! One of my favorite bass fishing spots with the chance of catching some stellar monster rainbows as well! It’s only open for fly fishing and the scenery driving to and fishing at this lake is quite breath taking!!! I really liked the music choice you put on this video! Thanks for sharing this cool video. Made my night!!!
