East Lake Update

East Lake - La Pine, OR (Deschutes County)

Photo from my friend Steve taken 5/17/23 East Lake is starting to thaw. A lot of snow on the ramps. He fished Paulina and caught some fish there yesterday wading the shoreline. Check out the Lakes Update I posted on the FFP website this morning for more info

East Lake ought to have some kind of access by the end of the month. It is icing off slowly. The photos I posted on my Facebook page show the lake looks a bit more full. We will cross our fingers that is truly the case when we see it in 2-3 weeks.
