The water level in the reservoir continues to drop

Green Peter Reservoir - Sweet, OR (Linn County)

This large reservoir gets stocked annually with 20,000 hatchery 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 and tend to be found in shallower water. Also look for them near rocky outcrops.

The water level in the reservoir continues to drop and will continue to do so through the fall.  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.
