Fishing Should Be good

Hemlock Lake - Roseburg, OR (Douglas County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The roads to both lakes should be open. Fishing should be good since the lakes have likely seen low pressure from anglers and spring is definitely the best time to fish these lakes.

The USFS has closed the campgrounds for the season, but will open back up when the road conditions improve. Anglers should be able to access the lakes from other areas. Anglers should check with the Umpqua National Forest (541-496-3532) for information on camp and ramp closures.

Anglers fishing the high lakes in the Umpqua District are encouraged to email fishing reports to [email protected]. Remember to only keep salmon and trout at least 8 inches long, and only one trout over 20 inches per day.
