Detroit Reservoir Fish Report for 12-9-2020
Detroit Reservoir Report
Detroit Reservoir - Detroit, OR
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Hwy. 22 has reopened, but expect delays and reduced speed limits from Mills City through Marion Forks. Mongold boat ramp is open but reservoir levels are too low to launch motorized boats. Smaller craft such as kayaks and pontoons can still be launched, however. Check reservoir levels at the US Army Corps of Engineer’s website for more information.
This time of year, and throughout the winter, trout are going to be the main fish to pursue. Kokanee will occasionally be caught during the winter but they generally aren’t active until late February.
Due to access issues from the recent fires, no additional fish will be stocked this fall.
As a reminder to anglers, fishing for and harvesting chinook in the lake and the rivers above is prohibited. Any chinook caught in Detroit must be released unharmed.
Anglers are encouraged to report their catch on forms available at signs and kiosks which have been installed at key locations around the lake. Simply fill out the form and return in the designated drop boxes. There is also an on-line form. Remember to indicate whether the fish you catch have their adipose fin or not. This information will allow ODFW to manage the fishery for the benefit of both recreational anglers and the resource.
