Water temperatures have decreased

North Fork Sprague River - (Lake County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Water temperatures have decreased. Catch rates are very low but redband trout are recolonizing the burned area. Fish density is increasing very slowly due to the Bootleg Fire but redband trout have been the first to recolonize the areas near the 3411 road bridge crossing. The river above the fire is a better bet for fishing. This includes Lee Thomas and Sandhill Crossing areas. These sections are dominated by small brook trout.
