Fishing recently has been excellent

Heart Lake - Bly, OR (Lake County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The lake will be stocked with 200 trophy rainbow trout this weekend. Fishing recently has been excellent. Fishermen have been trolling catching fat rainbow trout from 11-13 inches. Bait fishermen from the bank did poorly. The boat ramp is horrendous, but small boats can still be launched. The lake is full and fish have been rising throughout the morning.
