Ana River is A Great Match-The hatch Fly Fishing River

Ana River - Summer Lake, OR (Lake County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Recent fly-fishing reports indicate fishing has been slow, but fish in the 20-inch range were caught last month. This river is spring fed and can be fished year-round, as long as the occasional 30 mph wind gusts don’t get you down.

Ana River is a great match-the-hatch fly-fishing river with good hatches throughout the year. Hatches typically occur during the afternoon from 12-3 p.m. Small mayfly hatches are typically best on overcast days with light rain.

Tui chub and pit roach are abundant in the river therefore casting large flies or lures can be effective for catching larger fish. Bait fishing is allowed and anglers can keep 5 trout. Early this spring an angler caught a hybrid bass in the river, which happens occasionally.
