Fly Fishing at Historic Yamsi Ranch

Located at the headwaters of the world famous Williamson River, Oregon’s premier Fly Fishing Destination for trophy Brook Trout reaching 24” and Rainbow Trout stretching up to 31”. We offer several hunting and fly fishing packages for the outdoor enthusiast as well as weddings, corporate retreats and family getaways.

For the non fisherman you can walk the banks of the beautiful spring fed Williamson River, canoe the lake, relax on the porch with a good book, watch hundreds of birds fly through the valley including the Sand Hill Crane, or enjoy a trip to Crater Lake, located about 50 miles from Yamsi Ranch, or visit Klamath Marsh Wildlife Refuge.

Dear Gang at Yamsi Ranch,

I’m attempting to recover from one of the most wonderful three days in my adventuresome life. I wanted to express my true emotions, so you would know how I truly feel.

The Country is a gift from God and the family entrusted to develop Yamsi Ranch and maintain it as caretakers certainly have accepted the challenge and have enhanced this wonderful gift.

The environment and the surroundings of the Yamsi Ranch is without a doubt some of the most beautiful I have ever seen and I enjoyed every waking hour. My only regret is I just wished I didn’t have to sleep so I could have enjoyed the scenery, fresh air and the stars more.”
