Anglers are still finding a few fish

Diamond Lake - Diamond Lake, OR (Douglas County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Winter-like weather keeps poking its head out and snow may still be in the forecast for the weekend. Anglers are still finding a few fish. There’s no ice on the lake and the main ramp at the north end is open.

Anglers should check with the Umpqua National Forest (541-498-2531) for information on camps and ramps. All campgrounds at Diamond are now closed, and will likely not open until June. Anglers can check fishing and water conditions at Diamond Lake on the Diamond Lake Resort Facebook page or call 541-793-3333 for updates. Diamond Lake is open to fishing year-round.

Diamond Lake has been stocked with tiger and brown trout. These fish are intended to assist in controlling illegally introduced tui chub. These trout are catch-and-release only and need to be released immediately and unharmed if caught.
