Ana Reservoir: There are reports of good fishing on Ana Reservoir. The reservoir was stocked in April and stocked with 3000 legal size rainbow trout last week, and is due to be stocked with 2400 legal size rainbows next week.

Trolling lures and flies, and bait are taking fish.

Chickahominy Reservoir: Last month ODFW removed the trout bag limit on Chickahominy because of low water levels, specifically the reservoir is less than 10% full and there is approximately 6 feet of water in the deepest locations.

The lake is accessible. The bottom of the boat ramp was about a foot or two above the water in March. ODFW does not recommend launching a propeller driven boat out there. It is very turbid and there are some boulders in shallow water near the dam. A drift boat would be fine, and so are pontoon boats, but note that the reservoir level is dropping now.

The trout ODFW sampled this spring ranged from 10 to 22 inches.
Power Bait on the bottom were taking fish.

Chewaucan River: Runoff will be a short-lived event this year. The Chewaucan is fishing better now for trout with nymphs and lures right now. Fishing will improve through the month of May.

Krumbo Reservoir: Krumbo has been stocked with 13,000 rainbow trout during April.

NORTHEAST OREGON WATERS
Wallowa Lake: There are reports of kokanee action on the lake. The Wallowa Lake Marina is reporting catches of kokanee. Trolling with flasher rigs/single blade is working now, as well as jigging. Reports are that most fish are taken while trolling. Wallowa Lake is fishing best where the river enters the lake.
