Brownlee Reservoir - Richland, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Brownlee Reservoir now 37 ft. below full pool and the Spring Recreation and Steck Park boats launches appear unusable, while Hewitt & Holcomb park is approaching minimum water elevation required to launch a boat. One recent fishing report said fishing was good for channel catfish and smallmouth bass. Both were hitting nightcrawlers. The Powder Arm fishing has been slow of late, but producing bass in deeper water. Follow the links below to get up-to-date information on access along Brownlee Reservoir.
