The lake is freezing fast

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

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The lake is freezing fast. Ice fishing should be available by late December. There is an ice fishing group on Facebook and Instagram that updates the ice fishing in this area. Fishing for yellow perch is your best bet once the lake freezes. 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. Water temperatures will be very cold and likely freezing in early mornings.

You can also visit their website to observe current conditions at the lake.  Scroll down and click on the right side video link for a live video of current conditions on the lake at the Lodge.
