Central Oregon Fishing Report 03-07-08
by ODFW

CROOKED RIVER MAINSTEM: rainbow trout

No new reports.

CROOKED RIVER BELOW BOWMAN DAM: redband trout

The Crooked is currently flowing at 144 cfs. Warmer weather is resulting in some nice hatches. Reports from anglers indicate fair success for redband. ODFW and OSU have initiated a radio telemetry study on redband trout and whitefish, and anglers are reminded that radio-tagged fish cannot be legally harvested. To determine if a fish is radio-tagged, anglers should check for an eight-inch wire antenna protruding from the rear of both redband and mountain whitefish.

DESCHUTES RIVER:

Mouth to Warm Springs

Trout anglers will be successful by using nymphs. Water temperatures are cold but some bug hatches are occurring in the middle of the day. Anglers are reminded that the Deschutes River upstream from the northern boundary of the Warms Springs Reservation is closed to angling until April 26, 2008.

Lake Billy Chinook to Benham Falls

No anglers were interviewed as basis for a report. Please note that recent increased flow makes this stretch a little more of a challenge for anglers.

FALL RIVER:

No recent reports.

HAYSTACK RESERVOIR: rainbow trout, brown trout

No recent reports though there is good opportunity for brown trout and rainbow trout. Brown bullhead should be thinking about spawning. Anglers interested in targeting brown bullhead should work the south shoreline.

HOOD RIVER: summer steelhead, winter steelhead

The Hood River has very good visibility for steelhead fishing.† Some bright winter fish are being caught.† Fishing will continue to get better for the next month as the bulk of the hatchery and wild winter run return.

LAKE BILLY CHINOOK: Bull trout, brown trout, rainbow trout, kokanee, smallmouth bass

The Metolius arm opened to anglers beginning March 1. Anglers are reporting fair success for bull trout. There is also opportunity for rainbow trout, brown trout and kokanee.

METOLIUS RIVER:

Reports of some fair angling for redband trout and bull trout from Allingham Bridge downstream.

OCHOCO RESERVOIR: rainbow trout

No recent reports though the boat ramp is open and the reservoir is ice free.

PINE HOLLOW RESERVOIR: rainbow trout

No recent reports, but fall and early winter fishing can be productive at Pine Hollow.

PRINEVILLE RESERVOIR: rainbow trout

No recent reports though there is good opportunity for rainbow trout.

ROCK CREEK RESERVOIR: rainbow trout

Low reservoir level will limit both access and success.
