Quartzville Creek - Sweet Home, OR (Linn County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

This river above Green Peter Reservoir is usually stocked between May and July. Rain for the next week are going to make for challenging conditions for anglers. The river flows are on the high side, about 1,200 cfs currently. Best conditions for fishing are below 300 cfs. Light tackle including dry flies works best.

Trout have been stocked several times this spring and summer. Any holdover trout may be re-energized to bite thanks to the recent rain and cooler temperatures.

Trout are active year-round and anglers are allowed to keep up to five fish daily.
