Due to cold weather and icy conditions, angler activity and updates to this week’s recreation report are limited. Contact ODFW at the Deschutes Watershed Office (541) 388-6363 or Klamath Watershed Office (541) 883-5732 for more information.
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 the lake is still reported to be frozen over.
FALL RIVER: Angler success has been fair for some and poor for others. Fall River offers a great opportunity for anglers during the winter months though the fish don’t always bite according to plan.
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: Ice is breaking up and is unsafe for fishing.
PINE HOLLOW: Stocked with keeper trout.
