Brown Trout are Very Abundant in The Lake

Miller Lake - Chemult, OR (Klamath County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Miller Lake should be excellent for trophy hatchery rainbow trout. The lake was stocked heavily during Labor Day. There is ample room to fish from shore near the swimming beach or near the dock. Best fishing is from a boat trolling small spoons or flies for rainbow trout.

Brown trout are very abundant in the lake but catching them is quite challenging. Most brown trout will be holding near the thermocline at 15 feet. They feed almost exclusively on kokanee or stocked rainbow trout. Small brown trout can be found feeding on the hatches in the flats near the outlet of the lake. Another good location is the mouth of Evening Creek.
