Trout season at Lemolo and Diamond Lake opens Saturday

 
April 19, 2010

 

ROSEBURG, Ore. – Trout season opens Saturday, April 24 with plenty of legal and larger-sized trout for anglers at Lemolo Reservoir and Diamond Lake.

Recent cold weather and snow has iced over Diamond Lake so anglers should call 1-800-733-7593 x238 for updated ice conditions. As of Monday, the North Boat Ramp is plowed although the lake is still inaccessible to boaters.

Diamond Lake is once again producing a great trout fishery. There should be over 200,000 fingerlings from last year’s stocking that will be 12-inch trout at ice off. There will also be several thousand lunkers available from the 2008 stocking.

For the 2010 season, ODFW will be stocking 300,000 fingerlings, 10,000 predacious smolts, and 5,000 predacious fingerlings.

Lemolo Reservoir is ice-free so anglers have a good chance of catching brown trout and plus some trophy-sized rainbow trout that held over from last year. More than 20,000 rainbow trout in the 10-inch range are available, and ODFW is stocking another 2,000 legal-sized rainbows this week.

Anglers can access the Lodge’s boat ramp. Poole Creek boat ramp is plowed and there is plenty of boat and bank angler access.

Toketee Reservoir, which has both boat and bank access, is a good spot to fish in the early morning hours for brown trout. ODFW will stock Clearwater Forebay #2 with 1,500 rainbow trout this week.

Many other area lakes and reservoirs have been stocked and anglers can check the trout stocking schedule on the ODFW website at www.dfw.state.or.us. Boat anglers are reminded of new permit requirement regulations – see the Marine Board’s website at www.boatoregon.com for more information.
