Good kokanee spots near Corvallis?????

muskieguide
Hey all. Movin down to Corvallis in a couple weeks and am lookin for fishin buddies and good kokanee waters nearby. I don't know Oregon waters all that well but can tell you where the hot spots in WA are if you're headed that way. Thanks

only place i can mention somewhat close to corvallis would be Green Peter Reservoir east of sweethome oregon.

Yes, Green Peter is the closest...about 45 minutes one way. But, there is also Suttle Lake; about 1.5 hours away (which also holds LARGE browns). And there is Detroit Reservoir, also about 1.5 hours away.

If you want to shoot for a possible world record koke, Wallowa Lake is the place to go. Three consecutive state records have been harvested within the last 3 months. Plus, a possible new World Record was caught there on Sunday morning (breaking the state record again for the 4th time this year). It weighed in at 9.67 pounds, and was 27" long. The only downside is that Wallowa, is about 6 hours away from Corvallis.

Sounds good and thank you. We fished Riffe Lake the other day and hit 30 in 45 min all between 16-21 inches. Had similar results the previous 2 days between the 6 of us. I love eatin them things. If you guys ever need another rod, let me know. Thank you

Take I-5 north to exit 68 in WA and head east. There's a few dynamite bank spots and excellant trolling. Merwin and Yale resivours further south are awesome too.
