How is the fishing in any of the lakes near Baker City? i.e. Thief Valley Res., Phillips Lake, Unity Reservior. I will be fishing near there in the near future and would like to have a clue before I head out.

I've never fished there,but your best bet would be to PM joesnuffy or maybe gonefirefighting and get their input. joesnuffy lives in that area and would have the inside info. Good luck and be sure to let us know how you do.
Be safe.

Brownlee!!! Loads of smallmouth! :dance: Good catfishing, crappie at times.

Closer to Baker is Phillips, stocked with rainbows and packed with yellow perch. Anthony lake can be good for trout, and if you want to hike in, try twin lakes for trout.

brown trout, crappie, catfish etc.

I went to Owyhee resevoir a couple of weeks ago, it is about 50 mile outside of Ontario but worth the drive. We caught about 250 crappie, catfish in the 24" range, a few bass. The real treat is that the river right out of the dam has some nice big Brown trout, catch and release, also some rainbow. Good luck.

The river below Thief valley has some large fish sometimes. It depends on what the ranchers have done witht he water flows during the summer.

The bad part about it is the high chance of a rattlesnake encounter. LOTS of them in that area.

fish grow fast in that Res. it's just a matter of when the ranches drained it the last time and killed everything off. I've seen the lake drained and steelhead sized fish dead on the shore.

right below the dam is good as soon as the shade hits the water. Use a fly rod or put on a grasshopper though, i tried rooster tails and got nothing, while my buddy caught 3 or 4 big rainbows. I dont think there are too many living there so we catch and release
