Oregon Trout

available 365 days a year

Spring   Summer   Fall   Winter

What’s in Season:

  • Trout are being regularly stocked in water bodies throughout the state. Check the stocking schedules here.
  • On rivers and streams, fly anglers will want to watch for insect hatches and select a fly to “match the hatch.”
  • If drought conditions persist, water levels will continue to decrease while water temperatures will to increase. In response anglers should:
    • Fish early and often, some of the best fishing conditions of the year could be right now.
    • Refer to the most recent Recreation Report for the latest updates regarding changes in stocking schedules, fishing regulations or boating conditions.
    • Head for the hills, where lakes at higher elevations and the upper reaches of rivers often stay a little cooler.
    • Fish early or late in the day when temperatures are cooler – it’s easier on you and the fish!
    • Target warmwater species, which are a little better adapted to warm conditions.
    • Whatever you’re fishing for, land fish quickly and keep those you plan to release in the water as much as possible.
