Fishing should be great for holdover trout

Malheur Reservoir - Ironside, OR (Malheur County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Malheur Reservoir was sampled last fall and had some nice-size rainbows Most of the trout are in the eight-inch range but there are some much larger 15- to 17-inch fish available as well. ‌

Fishing should be great for holdover trout. The road i to the reservoir will be muddy, especially during or after wet weather so a four-wheel drive vehicle is advised. The boat ramp will be in the water now but use caution if you launch from an undeveloped location with muddy shoreline.
