There's tons of trout in that lake. I wouldnt worry about what time they stock it. Unless your interested in watching them dump them in.

really? is it good fishing right now? we would be bank fishing so where would be a good spot to go, dam? boat ramp? those are two of the good spots iv seen from doing research all day today lol. ya it would be cool to see how they do it since we have never seen it done but most of all we just want to catch some big fish haha

If the lake is full id fish off the dam by the spill away. me and my friends used to do well there. U can catch your limit of trout there pretty much all year. The only hard times would be in the middle of the summer when the lake is at its warmest. My other favorite spot to fish if the lake is full is all the way in the back. Sorta by the trees that are submerged in the water, pass carberry creek. If you need any more tips let me know. I used to go up there all the time and bank fish.

Also, the date posted on the website isn't the exact date of the stocking. It will get stocked anytime during the week. Usually later in the week. Good luck to you.

ok we will for sure try those spots, thanks shane, when we get back we will have some updates of our day for ya. @rainbow fisherman- thats weird cause u would think the date they put would be the day that they actually stock it since it says april 18th and not like april 18th-like the 25th it will be stocked, but its all good since shane mentioned fish being in the lake already

ya the last time we were there was in 2010 and the lake was like 20% full and it was not easy to fish and we got flat out skunked lol so this time the lake it 71% full so we should have a good time :)

The date listed on the stocking schedule, indicates that body of water will be stocked sometime that week. It could be Monday--and once in a while Tuesday. But typically, it is stocked Wednesday - Friday. It is just how it is, and this is described in the stocking information if you look for it.

ODFW and the hatcheries involved also do NOT guarantee a planting. It depends on many variables (bad weather is one).

So, if you want to be SURE that it is stocked BEFORE you venture out, call this number:

971-673-6000.

Press 2, to hear the schedule for that week.

Press 2 a second time, to hear all confirmed stockings. (WORD: sometimes the confirmations don't get updated immediately, so you can always press 0 and ask the receptionist).

Good luck,

TD

I just saw that lol thanks, that number will come in handy for sure so thanks for that. stoked or not were still gonna give it a shot cause it seems to be good fishing there right now :)
 
eat, sleep, fish
It was stocked with 565 2-3lb trout back in mid-February so there's some nice sized ones in there as well.

Good Luck
