Fishing is slow for rainbow trout as effort has been high

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fishing is slow for rainbow trout as effort has been high. The lake has been heavily stocked with 12- to 14-inch rainbow trout and trophy rainbow trout. Very large trophy rainbow trout were stocked on Tuesday, Aug. 31. Fishing will be slow for brown trout and kokanee. Brown trout will begin to cruise the shoreline and can also concentrate at the boat ramp looking for a place to spawn. Most kokanee are under 8 inches. There is ample room to bank fish. There is an excellent campground, boat ramp and swim beach on the lake as well.

The road into the lake is washboard and in horrible condition. Bring spare tires and travel extremely slowly if hauling a boat trailer.
