Trout fishing at Eel Lake has been decent

Eel Lake - Lakeside, OR (Coos County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Trout fishing at Eel Lake has been decent. With the warming water temperatures, anglers are reporting catching some trout with lots of copepods. This is common in Eel Lake this time of the year. Anglers should be careful of the large wild coho smolts that are still in the lake. There are no kokanee in Eel Lake and all coho salmon need to be released immediately.

Crappies will be moving up to the edge of the weedlines along shore with the warmer weather. Bank anglers can find decent fishing off the fishing dock
