Never fished it and will be heading up later in the week. I was wondering about some bait and lure trolling set-ups that have been working. Don't get trout fishing much and want to get good action as I will have my boys along.

Less than 50 feet from the Santiam River! :)
Welcome to the forum,Sidedrifter. :) Hope to hear from you often.
I haven't been to Harriet for a few years. But I seem to remember that it is a calm,serene,quiet little lake of about 20-25 acres. I don't know if it is deep enough for much of a boat. But a small one should do well. We used power bait and worms with fair success. Great to hear the youngsters are going with you. :clap: Have a great time.

Yeah I've been up there before during hunting season and it was a pretty lake. I've heard it was deep toward the lower end and it held good sized trout. Figured it would be an easy lake for a driftboat.

I will take the standard lake trolls and spinners but what would I need for the brooks and browns up there?

Trapped inside my own mind.
A driftboat would work in there fine.
using small gear is what has done well for us. and slowly dragging nymphs.

Never hooked any of the pigs I hear live in there though. #1 spinners work well on sunny days.

for bait worms, pautske's, and powerbait

Don't fish Harriet till they have confirmed that it is stocked, as the road as of last friday was still under a couple feet of snow. The PGE access is open but due to the main road being closed they aren't stocking the lake. But with the weather today I am sure it melted a little.

I went up on Saturday. Fished for a couple hours and didn't see or hear of any fish caught. A couple guys I talked to said that they didn't think it had been stocked. The road was 100% clear.

So after fishing for a couple hours and not seeing anything we loaded the boat and went to Silverton Res. and caught 15 in short order. Saw a lot more caught, too. Way better fishing but Harriet sure is pretty.

That's my report.

It's all good.! I've seen mostly Power bait, some spinners and fly fishing.

reserving favorite camping spot, no-luck, anybody no-anything.?

New to the forum with questions :)

Hey all....I'm new here and the site looks great!
Has anyone been up to Harriet lately? I was just wanting to know if there is still snow up there? Is the road open to Timothy from there? I'm trying to plan a camping trip for next week and need as much info as I can get.
Thanks, Tim

No snow at Harriet- the road is open all the way to Timothy- there is hardly any snow at Timothy.
