Fish Lake was stocked a few weeks ago with trophy trout. Water levels are still dropping, but trout fishing remains good with good clarity and cool water temperatures. Anglers should concentrate on deeper areas and near the springs at the east end of the lake. Kayaks and inflatables can do great here right now.

Fish Lake is now 10 percent full and 54 degrees. The Forest Service boat ramp and the resort ramp is unusable due to low lake levels. Inflatables and kayaks may have trouble at the Forest Service boat ramp due to mud -- try the resort area. 

Tiger trout, Chinook salmon, brook trout, and larger rainbow trout are available. Remember that tiger trout must be immediately released unharmed. Anglers are encouraged to report their catch of tiger trout to fish district staff at 541-826-8774.
