Eel Lake Fishing Report

Eel Lake - Lakeside, OR (Coos County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Anglers are still reporting catching a few trout this past week from a boat and from the fishing dock in Eel Lake. Boat anglers have been picking up 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. 

Crappies and bluegills are transitioning to deeper water for the winter as the water temperatures continue to cool.
