Open all year. The lake is turbid. Catch rates continue to improve but it’s still slow. Most anglers fish with dead minnows along Howard and Shoalwater bays. 

Boat ramps are open. This includes Moore Park, Rocky Point, Wocus Bay and Eagle Ridge.  Currently, most boat anglers are experiencing very poor fishing. 

Hagelstein Park boat ramp, restroom and campground is now open. However, the lake level is low therefore getting a boat out of Hagelstein might be challenging. Please remember that nets of any type cannot be used to catch any species of fish. This includes minnows to use for bait. 

ODFW encourages catch-and-release on this fishery due to record low spawning numbers last year and low numbers two years prior. Please fight your fish quickly and then release your fish immediately without removing it from the water. 

The lake is 2.4 feet below full pool and 61 percent full. Water temperature is peaking around 55 degrees on the east side of the lake. 

Please remember that once you retain your one redband/rainbow trout limit you must stop fishing for redband/rainbow trout. Also, all radio tagged redband trout must be released unharmed. Redband trout will have what looks to be fishing line coming from the abdomen. These fish will be 6-18 inches in length. Last updated 4/14/21.
