Access is difficult due to snow

North Fork Sprague River - (Lake County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Access is difficult due to snow. Fishing not recommended at this time. Open year-round. 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 Rd 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. Fishing will be excellent for brook trout as they concentrate to spawn. Bait is allowed above the lowermost 3372 road crossing. Brook trout harvest is encouraged
