Trout fishing may be good on warmer days

Cooper Creek Reservoir - Sutherlin, OR (Douglas County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Trout fishing may be good on warmer days. Try fishing for bass around aquatic vegetation in the mid-morning and late afternoon hours. One thousand catchable trout were stocked in the lake in early February, with another stocking scheduled for the middle of March.

Beginning in 2016, Cooper has been stocked with coho and Chinook salmon juveniles. These are often mistaken for kokanee. Anglers may retain up to 5 salmon juveniles in the reservoir as part of their daily trout bag limit.
