ANTELOPE FLAT RESERVOIR: Opportunities for 12-14 inch rainbow trout are fair. Illegally introduced bullhead have had a negative impact on trout angling. Snow may limit access. Contact Ochoco National Forest @ 541-416-6500.

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 from the past week.

CROOKED RIVER BELOW BOWMAN DAM: Opportunities for 8-16 inch rainbow trout are fair to good. Repairs and improvements being conducted on Bowman Dam are scheduled to be completed by the end of this week. Flows should be gradually increased each day until 200-250 CFS is reached by the end of the weekend. Flows will remain at this level through the holiday period. Once fish adjust to the new flows opportunities for both trout and whitefish should be excellent.
