Idaho Fish Report
The reservoir may start to fill back up again, but it was still low at last check
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Caution: The west boat ramp at Cooper has a severe drop off that likely prohibits some boats from launching and some trailers have been damaged. Please use caution if using the ramp. The East Ramp is still usable.
The reservoir may start to fill back up again, but it was still low at last check. ODFW couldn’t stock the last group of fish in Cooper, but over 10,000 trout were stocked this year so there should be plenty.
Beginning in 2016, Cooper has been stocked with coho and Chinook salmon juveniles (20,000 coho in 2019). These are often mistaken for kokanee. Anglers may retain up to 5 salmon juveniles in the reservoir as part of their daily trout bag limit. Please remember to release salmon and trout less than 8 inches.
