The Trout Bend was a river valley that lay between the hills of Rhovanion and an unnamed range of hills just slightly north of the Southlands. The Trout Bend was invented for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power by Amazon Studios.


The Trout Bend was named for the bend in a illegibly named river (--OG) that originated just at the eastern end of the river valley.


In the late Second Age, the Trout Bend was a location that a certain Harfoot community passed by when migrating from one seasonal haven to the next, particularly from the Norfield Glen to the Grove.

During one such migration, the Brandyfoot family, Poppy Proudfellow, and The Stranger crossed above a waterfall following after the main caravan of the Harfoot community which was far ahead of them.

Later, a group of three Mystics possibly passed through the Trout Bend when they were stalking the Harfoot migration trail, seeking to find the Stranger.
