Lake Water Temps Have Dropped

Tenmile Lakes - Lakeside, OR (Coos County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The lake water temperatures have dropped a few degrees over the past week. There are still some largemouth bass along the weedlines but fish are starting to transition to harder structures like submerged logs. Anglers are catching largemouth bass on topwater, swim baits, and jigs.  

Some anglers are catching yellow perch fishing small jigs or worms on a hook near the bottom in 8-10 feet of water. The outside weedlines are fairly consistent at 9 feet of water throughout the lake. Yellow perch will be transitioning to the deep-water mud flats for the fall.  

Trout fishing has slowed down with the warmer water temperatures. Anglers will have the best success fishing for trout in the deeper water and trolling slowly
