This is the best time of year to fish this river

Chewaucan River - Valley Falls, OR (Lake County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

This is the best time of year to fish this river. Fishing will start picking up as the water warms the first week of June. Cast spinners across and downstream and slowly work them through deeper riffles and lower pools. Some of the best way to cover water is stripping flies or hanging beadheads under indicators. Camping is available and is a perfect time to hang out and have fun. The bag limit is 2 fish only one of which can be over 20 inches.
