Weather Outlook Across Central and Eastern Oregon:

Dry weather and daytime temperatures near or above normal continue through Saturday. Temperatures will be in the 40s along the forested spring creeks and the lower Deschutes, and climb into the 40s until Saturday. Night-time temperatures will be in the 20s through much of the region.

Rain and mixed precipitation will return to the region starting on Sunday and through the first few days of next week. Maupin and areas of the high desert around the Lower Deschutes look to remain dry.

EASTERN/SOUTHEASTERN OREGON WATERS

Ana Reservoir:
Fishing on Ana Reservoir remains steady for legal and trophy size trout, but will slow down with colder temperatures. Trout will go for slowly stripped leeches and streamer patterns.

Trolling lures and flies, and bait are taking fish.

Blitzen River: No new reports. Latest water temperatures are in and around 32 degrees, meaning the trout will go to the bottom and get lethargic. The banks will begin icing over if not already. Flows remain low in the 30 to 32 CFS range.

If fishing there, it will be a nymphing game: PTs, Euro nymph style flies.

Lofton Reservoir: Likely iced over for the season.

Chewaucan River: Cold water and starting to ice over for the winter.

Krumbo Reservoir: Fishing well in November. No new December reports, but colder weather may start icing the reservoir over.

Sprague River: Closed for the season. North Fork public lands are inaccessible from last summer’s Bootleg fire.

Williamson River: Closed for the season.
