Unfortunately,I don't get to fish those beautiful lakes the way I used to, so I am not the best source of information. But, there is a wealth of information,including locations,techniques,bait suggestions and just about everything you will need to know in our archives. Pick a lake or area and someone here has posted information for everyone to benefit from. You can also check one of my favorite websites for all sorts of info:

Are you boating, floating or banking? Most of the places it is best to float or boat. Some of the lakes have rentals so that might be an option. Know your fishing method would help narrow things down a bit too. Is bait, spinners, or fly. Some of the spots are fly only and some are open to all methods. Lets us know maybe we can fine tune a good answers for you. Tight lines.

I've fished Devil's lake like 50 times, and it's very small, only about 15 feet at it's deepest, crystal clear, and very easy to catch fish on. Clear bobber and dry fly (mosquito, adams, etc.) works well, along with literally anything else. It's best fished from a small raft or canoe, but you can walk the entire shore line presuming the snow was melted.. which it hasn't haha probably. Lava lake can be really good for large rainbows, but I don't know it's shape either given i'm in astoria. Hosmer lake has atlantic salmon in it and is absolutely beautiful, but it is restricted to legit fly gear only, and moterless boats.

North Twin lake right by Wickiup Reservior. Worms power bait and or eggs from the shore. Also another vote for Devils lake.

Not really that is totally weather dependant. I know the Cascades got another big dump of snow.

about Boat Escape

about Boat Escape

Boat Escape is a great online resource, but unknowledgeable anglers will not realize that there are numerous omissions and mistakes when it comes to the fish species listed for each water. Unfortunately, that seems to be the standard situation regarding most fishing information.
