Lake of the Woods has been stocked heavily with trophy rainbow trout

Lake Of The Woods - Klamath Falls, OR (Klamath County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Lake of the Woods has been stocked heavily with trophy rainbow trout. High water temperatures send the rainbow trout to deeper water. They typically will hold around the thermocline at 15 feet of depth. A large load of rainbow trout were stocked prior to fourth of July. These are fish that were slated for lakes that are closed due to the 2021 Bootleg Fire and also fish slated for Fourmile Lake, which is currently closed for forest maintenance. Most fish are around 18 inches when stocked.

Water temperatures are really warm so fishing for largemouth bass and some smallmouth bass might be worth a shot.

Fishing for yellow perch will also be a good bet. The lake is dominated by stunted yellow perch. Very small bait and hooks will catch these fish. For recent updates on fishing, you can call the resort at 1-866-201-4194.
