Green Peter Reservoir Fish Report for 7-21-2021
The water level in the reservoir has dropped below the bottom elevation of Whitcomb boat ramp
Green Peter Reservoir - Sweet, OR (Linn County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
This large reservoir gets stocked annually with 20,000 hatchery trout. It was stocked again a few weeks ago with 6,250 trout. Look for them in cooler, deeper water and around ledges, drop-offs and underwater structure. Smallmouth bass also like to hang out near underwater structure but tend to be found in shallower water.
The water level in the reservoir has dropped below the bottom elevation of Whitcomb boat ramp, making it unsafe for launching. But Thistle Creek boat ramp is still available and should be fine for the rest of the summer.
Kokanee, trout and smallmouth bass are all available. Anglers may keep up to 25 kokanee per day in addition to the 5-trout limit.
Best bet for anglers without a boat is to drive to the top of the reservoir where Quartzville Creek enters the reservoir. Large trout will sometimes forage where the river brings in food swept down from upstream.
