Best FIshing is Close to The Bank

Priday Reservoir - Burns, OR (Lake County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

This reservoir was stocked with 500 trophy rainbow trout the week of March 18. It has been slowly filling due to cold temperatures above, but there is going to be a lot more water coming off the mountain soon. The best fishing will be within 60-80 feet from the bank. This is where most of the natural feeding occurs. There should also be a lot of holdover trout from previous years stocking. If bait fishing cast short distances from the shore. If fly or lure fishing try casting parallel to the shoreline and retrieve slowly.

Priday Reservoir is on some BLM property between Plush and Adel, but the majority of the reservoir is on private property. Please respect the private property by staying on the main roads and cleaning up trash from others.
