I saw it as being on the stocking schedule that someone from ODFW sent me. Drove an hour and twenty and the gates were closed. I hate making that trip with no prospect of a pay off. Has anyone any info on this fishery? ODFW had no number for Georgia Pacific. And I could not find a contact for them on any net search.

Please report what you find out. It's a cool little lake.

No. It is not open. I called and spoke the employee at the gate, at Georgia Pacific, 2 days ago. Who own the land, and she confirmed that it is NOT open. PLUS they DO ARREST TRESPASSERS who might attempt to get past the Olalla gate on foot!

Why it was included in the stocking schedule is beyond my comprehension.

@edpdx you could have gone onto Big Creek Reservoir #2 and fished that day. When you discovered that Olalla was closed. That lake IS open and has been stocked.

Troutdude. Thanks for the update. I took your advice and went to Big Creek Res #2 last Friday. Found an awesome spot just getting sun- private shore. Couldn't ask for a better place... well one that had a bite on would be okay. Two hours throwing PB, Mice, wax worm, Berk red wigglers, Kastmasters. Tried off the top and Carolina with varied floating leader. Two rods never a twitch. Them's the breaks, I know. But next time I head there I hope the Olalla Res is back in biz so I have a backup plan.

Could you share the GP phone number so we all can keep checking and hopefully share the opening date here eventually?

TIA
