Likely Inaccessible

Miller Lake - Chemult, OR (Klamath County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Likely inaccessible, except by snow machine, due to snow. Water temperatures are approaching freezing. Miller Lake will probably be slow 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. Large brown trout are cruising the shoreline. Many brown trout are mingling around the boat ramp looking for a place to spawn. 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.
