Catch rates for largemouth bass should be improving

Campbell Reservoir - Lakeview, OR (Klamath County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Catch rates for largemouth bass should be improving. The reservoir was dry in summer of 2022. All fish perished. ODFW and BLM have stocked largemouth bass and a few crappie in 2023. Crappie form Gerber Reservoir will be stocked later this month. Please release all fish as they need to spawn this year to repopulate the reservoir. There might also be a few redband trout around. The reservoir is about 85 percent full. The reservoir should fill this year.‌

There is no boat ramp on the reservoir that occurs on public property. Most of the reservoir sits on private property. Water is slightly turbid but better water clarity than most desert reservoirs. Water temperature is cold and fishing will be slow
