Lake of the Woods was stocked with rainbow trout for Fourth of July weekend

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

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Lake of the Woods was stocked with rainbow trout for Fourth of July weekend. Many of the rainbow trout will seek colder water. Therefore you will need to get you lures down to about 15 feet at the thermocline for best results. For recent updates on fishing, you can call the resort at 1-866-201-4194.

Fishing should be fair this week for hatchery rainbow trout due to very warm water temperatures. The lake is dominated by stunted yellow perch. Very small bait and hooks will catch these fish.

Surprisingly a few crappie are being caught from the lake. Bass fishing should be good especially around all the wood and docks along the lake.

You can also visit Lake of the Wood’s 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.
