Chiloquin is a small town on the east side of the Cascade Range in southeast Oregon.
Both the Williamson and Sprague rivers run through the high desert town. The Williamson River is one of the West’s most prolific trophy rainbow trout fisheries.
The Sprague River joins the Williamson River near Chiloquin. Fishermen prize the river’s rainbow up to three pounds or larger and the hefty brown trout population.
