Oregon Trout

available 365 days a year

Spring   Summer   Fall   Winter

What’s in Season:

  • With water temperatures cooling, trout will be getting more active and fishing should pick up. Fish begin to feed heavily in the fall in anticipation of the leaner months of winter.
  • As water temperatures continue to cool, look for trout feeding in the warmer, shallow waters near shore.
  • Many rivers and streams will close to fishing on Oct. 31 – though several popular locations remain open year-round.
  • Most lakes and ponds are open year-round, and some will continue to be stocked with trout into October and November. Check out the stocking schedules to see which ones.
  • Holdover fish will still be available in lakes and reservoirs stocked throughout the summer months. These fish have only grown bigger, and can offer great fishing throughout the fall and early winter.
