Lake Level Should Begin to Drop

Tenmile Lakes - Lakeside, OR (Coos County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The Tenmile Lakes water level should begin to drop and temperatures rise with better spring weather. This should improve the fishing conditions for bass and other warmwater fish in the coming weeks. Yellow perch are the earliest spawners, and they will be congregating, which can make for good fishing if you locate a school. Anglers use small jigs or a worm on a hook fished near the bottom.

The Tenmile Lakes are scheduled to be stocked with legal rainbow the week of April 16. 
Tenmile Lakes should start giving up some nice holdover trout in the coming weeks; some can measure over 17-inches long. Trolling slow with a wedding ring tipped with a worm can produce a few trout in Tenmile Lakes.
