Opportunities in the region, particularly in the high country, will diminish with colder weather. Streams closed to trout fishing Oct. 31.

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: No new reports.

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 from the past week.

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.
