Will Be Stocked Again in The Fall

The reservoir was stocked in late May with about 2,700 trout. That was the last stocking of the season. It will be stocked again in the fall.

Besides trout, look for smallmouth bass and yellow perch near underwater structure and drop-offs. Please remember that only kokanee and adipose fin-clipped trout may be kept as part of the trout bag limit, but there are no limits on size or number of bass. Retention of warmwater fish species such as bluegill, catfish, crappie, and yellow perch is also allowed -- no limit on size or number. Anglers report good success in the two arms of the reservoir, as well as the shoreline in between. 

This reservoir is now full and all three boat ramps are currently available to launch boats. This lake is popular with water-skiers and other pleasure boaters. Anglers should focus their efforts early or late in the day when boat traffic is lower, and in places where activity is lower such as in the upper arms.

This scenic 1,200-acre reservoir on the South Santiam River is located just 30 minutes from Interstate 5. There is good bank access at several rest stops and campgrounds, and three seasonal boat ramps.
