Water Temps Have Warmed to 70 Degrees

John C Boyle Reservoir - Keno, OR (Klamath County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Water temperature has warmed to 70 degrees. Fishing is improving as water clarity and water temperatures push fish into the shallows. Try the rocky areas for crappie. The crappie fishery is likely just past peak but still worth the time. Bass are also starting to bite.

Past net sampling showed some large yellow perch in the reservoir above the bridge crossing. Highest catch of all fish was above Topsy Bridge. Yellow perch bite really well this time of year.

Open and accessible all year. Water levels generally remain very similar and drop as the day progresses as water is released for power generation. There are numerous points of access on the reservoir as most property surrounding the reservoir is BLM or PacifiCorp property. There are three boat ramps on the reservoir.
