Last Week People Were Catching Fish on the Bank With Lures

Lofton Reservoir - Bly, OR (Lake County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Last week people were catching fish on the bank with lures. The water level is already a foot or two lower than the boat ramp. People have been doing pretty good trolling and bait fishing from boats and the bank. Like most lakes trolling with lures and flies are great options to load up your cooler. If casting from the shore is more of your cup o tea then you can reach most of the water around this reservoir. The handicap fishing pier is not available, but the Forest Service will be trying to build a new fishing pier in 2022. Also the dilapidated dock has been removed and will hopefully be replaced soon.
