Fishing is good for rainbow trout near the south end of the lake. Anglers may have good success from shore casting lures, flies, or bait. Boat anglers will have better access to more of the lake and may find fish near areas where the depth drops off.

There are some nice kokanee available this year with some fish around 16 – 18 inches. Jigging and trolling for kokanee can both be productive ways of fishing for them in Wallowa Lake.
