The lake was stocked recently and there should be lots of trout.

Trout fishing has been picking up with warming temperatures. Some anglers are having success, and a recent report indicates decent fishing with the anglers even catching a few juvenile coho and Chinook.

In the last two years, Cooper has been stocked with coho and Chinook salmon juveniles. These are often mistaken for kokanee. Anglers may retain up to 5 salmon juveniles in the reservoir as part of their daily trout bag limit. Please remember to release salmon and trout less than 8-inches.

Warmwater is definitely picking up with multiple reports of bass and bluegill. Try fishing for bass around aquatic vegetation in the mid-morning and late afternoon hours.
