CLACKAMAS, Ore. – Beginning next week, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and Portland General Electric will attempt to remove the remaining fish from Roslyn Lake before it is drained. Where possible, the fish will be relocated to other waterbodies.

Roslyn Lake, located near Sandy, will be drained over the next few weeks. Once emptied, Portland General Electric, which owns the lake, will restore the lake bed to its natural contours. Removal of the Marmot and Little Sandy Dams upriver has eliminated the need for the lake.

 “We removed the bag limit at the lake in January to give local fishermen access to all of the fish that are in the lake before the water is gone,” said Todd Alsbury, ODFW District Fish biologist.  “As we collect fish next week, we will transport the native species back to their natural home in the river. We’ll take the non-native species and any remaining hatchery trout to nearby lakes and ponds to give anglers another chance to catch them.”

Roslyn Lake holds several fish species including hatchery rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, bluegill, mountain whitefish, suckers and, possibly, brown bullhead.
