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.

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.

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

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
