Inaccessible Due to Fire

Heart Lake - Bly, OR (Lake County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

This lake was stocked last month with 700 larger trout and 300 trophy trout. It looks like very few rainbow trout held over from the winter due to brown bullhead competition. Trolling and bait fishing have been fair. Early and late times of day will be more productive.

Illegal introductions of brown bullhead catfish have been negatively impacting overwinter survival and the rainbow trout fishery. People have been catching small brown bullhead, but did catch some over 15 inches with worms last year. ODFW encourages the retention of all brown bullhead caught in this fishery.
