Quartzville Creek - Sweet Home, OR (Linn County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

This river above Green Peter Reservoir gets stocked from late spring through the summer. The creek was last stocked in late July with about 2,200 trout. 

Flows have been coming down and will likely continue to slowly drop over the next week as we enter a dry period. Currently the river is at 760 cfs. Conditions best for fishing are below 300 cfs. Trout fishing is open year-round, but fishing tactics may have to change for the winter months. Drifting nymph patterns on a fly rod, or slowly retrieving lures sometimes work best in the colder months when fish try to conserve energy. 

Light tackle including flies works best, but bait is allowed. 

Trout are active year-round, and anglers are allowed to keep up to five fish daily.
