The water level in Green Peter continues to rise

Green Peter Reservoir - Sweet, OR (Linn County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The water level in Green Peter continues to rise and is now only 25 feet below full pool. Thistle Creek boat ramp was re-opened by Linn County on Feb. 1. This time of year, your main quarry will be trout and any kokanee that may have survived the unprecedented drawdown this fall. Smallmouth bass fishing will begin to heat up in a few weeks when the water warms up a little. ‌

The reservoir is usually stocked with trout in the spring. It was stocked again last week with 5,000 hatchery trout. Later in the spring and summer this reservoir also produces excellent smallmouth bass. Also, as a reminder to anglers, fishing for and harvesting Chinook in the lake and the rivers above is prohibited. Any Chinook caught in Green Peter reservoir must be released unharmed. ‌
