Excessive heat warnings remain in place for Central and Northeast Oregon through at least Sunday. The Excessive Heat Warning is for: Foothills of the Northern Blue Mountains of Oregon, Eastern Columbia River Gorge of Oregon, Central Oregon, Foothills of the Southern Blue Mountains of Oregon and North Central Oregon.

EASTERN/SOUTHEASTERN OREGON WATERS

Ana Reservoir: There are reports of good fishing on Ana Reservoir for legal and trophy size trout. The reservoir was just stocked this past week.

Lofton Reservoir: I’ve fished Lofton in the past and heard stories dating back 40 and 50 years of some of the trout taken from Lofton.

Sprague River: Upper Forks of the Sprague, such as the North Fork have good USFS access.

Williamson River: It is Hexagenia time on the Williamson, a bit early, but expected.

Klamath River (below Keno dam): The Klamath was fishing well with dry flies over this past week.

Krumbo Reservoir: Krumbo is fishing well for stocked legal and trophy sized trout.

NORTHEAST OREGON WATERS
Wallowa Lake: Wallowa is fishing well for trout, with recent stockings of legal and trophy sized trout. Fishing at the inlet has been best.
Even Wallowa Lake at nearly 4,400 feet is hot. Recent reports are that the kokanee bite is picking up.

Wallowa River: Rob from The Joseph Fly Shoppe is dropping. A check of the mean daily flow as of today shows 600 CFS.

Grande Ronde River: Report from Rob at the Joseph Fly Shoppe are that there are active stone flies on the lower portion.

Imnaha River: The Imnaha is back in the report and fishing well – lots of hopper action on the river. Water level has dropped and now around 150 CFS, which is lower than the raging levels in recent weeks.

High Lakes: Not yet accessible. Watch for upcoming reports.
