Eel Lake Fish Report for 7-21-2021
Boat anglers have been picking up a few trout
Eel Lake - Lakeside, OR (Coos County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Anglers fishing from a boat and from the fishing dock are still catching trout in Eel Lake. Boat anglers have been picking up a few trout by trolling with wedding ring spinners tipped with a worm. Anglers are catching trout from the fishing dock casting spinners, fishing PowerBait, or casting a nightcrawler on a hook with no weight.
Be aware that anglers are also catching juvenile coho salmon which are not legal to harvest and must be released immediately unharmed.
Anglers are continuing to catch crappies and bluegills near the edges of weedlines at the fishing dock and throughout the lake. Some days these fish will be suspended in 15-20 feet of water away from the weedlines.
