Winter and Early Spring Are Best Months For Trout

Willow Lake - Heppner, OR (Morrow County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Winter and early spring are best months to target trout; fish with night crawlers or PowerBait on the bottom. Water levels are raising quickly, with spring runoff, and this will likely put the water off color. The reservoir is stocked with fingerlings annually, which should now be in the 10- to 12-inch range.
