ODFW Reduces Bag Limit at Thief Valley Reservoir

June 11, 2010


LA GRANDE — Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife) announced today that it is rescinding the liberalized trout bag limit implemented on May 1, 2010 at Thief Valley Reservoir. Effective June 11, 2010 the trout bag limit at Thief Valley Reservoir returns to the regular daily bag limit of five, with an eight inch minimum length. All other regulations pertaining to Thief Valley Reservoir remain unchanged.

In early May, ODFW liberalized the bag limit at Thief Valley Reservoir anticipating low summer reservoir levels due to below average snowpack. The heavy rains in recent weeks have changed the water outlook for the summer, meaning that the reservoir will likely not reach ritically low levels which could lead to high losses of the trout. ODFW is returning the daily bag limit to 5 trout to protect a good crop of large trout from over-harvest. This will provide excellent fishing for large trout through next spring.

Thief Valley Reservoir is located on the Powder River near Baker City in the Southeast Oregon fishing zone.
