Central and Eastern Oregon Fishing Reports
From avid Angler Tim Moran
No update this week from our friend Tim.
South Twin Lake has been recently stocked with 100 Cranebow brood fish.
The snow gates west of Mt. Bachelor between Dutchman Flat and Deschutes Bridge are closed for the winter.
Trout anglers can target the Crooked, lower Deschutes and Metolius rivers, where fishing for native redbands is open throughout the year.
Recent cold weather has slowed fishing, but anglers have been catching steelhead on the John Day.
Fishing conditions on the Umatilla are good. Steelhead anglers should focus on the lower sections of the river above and below Threemile Dam.
Anglers have been ice fishing on several water bodies including Lofton Reservoir, Phillips Reservoir, and Yellowjacket Lake.
