Opportunities in the region, particularly in the high country, will diminish with colder weather.
ANTELOPE FLAT RESERVOIR: Opportunities for 12-14 inch rainbow trout are fair. Illegally introduced bullhead have had a negative impact on trout angling.
CLEAR LAKE: Clear Lake, located about 20 miles west of Maupin, has been stocked with keeper trout and should offer good angling opportunity.
COLUMBIA RIVER FROM BONNEVILLE RESERVOIR TO JOHN DAY DAM: Bass fishing has been good in the main Columbia and backwaters. Anglers are reporting good catch rates of nice bass in shallow water with artificial baits of various types.
CRESCENT LAKE: No reports. Weather has been a little daunting for many anglers. Crescent Lake is open year round and this is typically an excellent time of year to chase after brown trout, lake trout and rainbow.
CROOKED RIVER BELOW BOWMAN DAM: Opportunities for 8-16 inch rainbow trout are fair. Repairs and improvements are being conducted on Bowman Dam through November. During this period stream flow will be approximately 35 CFS. The reduced flow and temporary shutdowns earlier in the month likely have disrupted trout and it may take a week or two for fish to adjust to the new flows. Normal winter flows of 70 CFS should return in early December.
DESCHUTES RIVER: Dry fly fishing has been slow; anglers should look at using nymphing tactics in the slow water areas.
DESCHUTES RIVER (Lake Billy Chinook to Benham Falls): No reports from the past week.
DESCHUTES RIVER (Benham Falls to Wickiup Reservoir): Closed to trout angling Oct. 31.
DESCHUTES RIVER (Crane Prairie to Little Lava Lake): This reach of river is now closed for the season.
FALL RIVER: Fish are not taking so readily to the angler’s offerings as earlier in the season. Please note that the reach of Fall River below the main falls closed for the season on September 30. The reach of river above the falls is open all year.
FROG LAKE: Frog Lake, located about 20 miles west of Maupin, has been stocked with keeper trout and should offer good angling opportunity.
HAYSTACK RESERVOIR: Rainbow and brown trout 10-18 inches are available. No recent reports.
KINGSLEY RESERVOIR: Kingsley Reservoir, located west of Hood River, has recently been stocked with keeper and trophy trout and should offer good angling opportunity.
