John C Boyle Reservoir - Keno, OR (Klamath County)

Open and accessible all year. Fishing is slow but warmwater fish should be moving into the shallows with the warm weather.

Past net sampling showed some large yellow perch in the reservoir above the bridge crossing. Highest catch of all fish was above Topsy Bridge. Some very nice brown bullhead came out of Topsy last year. Fishing bait on the bottom might be your best method.

Water levels generally remain very similar and drop as the day progresses as water is released for power generation. There are numerous points of access on the reservoir as most property surrounding the reservoir is BLM or PacifiCorp property. There are three boat ramps on the reservoir.
