ANTELOPE FLAT RESERVOIR: Opportunities for 12-14 inch rainbow trout are fair. Illegally introduced bullhead have had a negative impact on trout angling. Recent snows 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 boat ramps are accessible due to snow and few if any anglers on the water over the past week. There is open water for those anglers with float tubes and pontoon craft.
CROOKED RIVER BELOW BOWMAN DAM: Angling opportunities for redband trout and mountain whitefish are limited, but improving. Due to recent rains and water level in Prineville Reservoir stream flows in the river have been approximately 500 CFS the last couple of weeks. Managers will be reducing flows throughout the week with weekend flows of 300 CFS anticipated. Wading will be difficult at this flow, but the river should be fishable with trout actively feeding after several weeks of high flows. By next week flows are projected to be down to 200 CFS. Anglers can check daily flows at this website. http://www1.wrd.state.or.us/cgi-bin/choose_realtime_gage.pl?basin=05
DESCHUTES RIVER: Dry fly fishing has been slow; anglers should look at using nymphing tactics in the slow water areas.
FALL RIVER: Reports of success being hit and miss with an overall assessment of fish activity on the slow side. Please note that the reach of Fall River below the main falls is closed. 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.
KINGSLEY RESERVOIR: Kingsley Reservoir, located west of Hood River, has recently been stocked with keeper and trophy trout and should offer good angling opportunity.
LAURANCE LAKE: Laurance Lake, located near Parkdale, has been stocked with keeper trout.
OCHOCO RESERVOIR: Opportunities for 12-18 inch rainbow trout are good. Portions of the reservoir may be icing over, however, conditions are likely unsafe for ice angling.
