Detroit Reservoir Fish Report for 5-12-2021
The Lake Has Been Stocked Several Times in Recent Weeks With One-Pound Hatchery Trout
Detroit Reservoir - Detroit, OR
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
The lake has been stocked several times in recent weeks with one-pound hatchery trout. The reservoir is slowly filling up, but it is still about 18 feet below full pool. Boaters are able to use Mongold State Park boat ramp as well as one of the boat ramps at Detroit Lake State Park to launch boats. Over the next few weeks, other boat ramps should become available as well.
For the latest information on water levels at Detroit Reservoir check with the Army Corps of Engineers’ website for more information.
Water temperature is slowly rising which means fish are going to be feeding more actively. Pretty much all techniques will catch fish, but it might take some experimenting to find out what is most effective on the day you’re out there.
Anglers have reported catching lots of small chinook salmon in pursuit of kokanee and trout. Please take extra care in releasing these fish back into the water unharmed, as they are listed species and are only in the reservoir temporarily before they migrate downstream and out the ocean.
As a reminder to anglers, fishing for and harvesting chinook in the lake and the rivers above is prohibited. Any chinook caught in Detroit must be released unharmed.
Anglers are encouraged to report their catch on forms available at signs and kiosks which have been installed at key locations around the lake. Simply fill out the form and return in the designated drop boxes. There is also an on-line form. Remember to indicate whether the fish you catch have their adipose fin or not. This information will allow ODFW to manage the fishery for the benefit of both recreational anglers and the resource.
