7 cases of stolen fishing gear in 2 weeks at Central Oregon campgrounds

With our improving weather and pandemic conditions, it was just a matter of time before the criminal element honed in on the fly fishing boomlet.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office says seven cases of stolen fishing gear have been reported in the past two weeks and is urging those hitting the high lakes to be cautious so they don’t join the list of victims.

KJ Risdal said Monday he was camping at Crane Prairie last Thursday when about $15,000 worth of fishing gear was stolen from the back of his truck.
