Major trout plantings for Spring break!

From my buddy Eric at Best Fishing in Oregon:

"The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife plans to stock over 150,000 trout in lakes and ponds across the state before and during the upcoming Spring Break for students.

Most Oregon students start their Spring Break starts this weekend and will be out of school through the last day of March.

ODFW stocked the waters of Western Oregon most heavily, both because these areas have the most people and west-side waters warm up earlier in the year. These areas include the interior valleys in the I-5 corridor and along the Oregon Coast.

Central and Eastern Oregon will see some local ponds and lakes stocked with trout, but many more catchable trout will be heading to waters on that side of the Cascades later in the spring and summer.

Using ODFW’s stocking schedules, I’ve created tables with each zone’s waters scheduled for stocking both this week and next week to help you choose a spot where you are most like to catch trout over the break. Bear in mind that ODFW occasionally changes its plans due to a variety of reasons.

Before you go find your fish in the zone tables below, a great resource on this website is the interactive county map on our Best Fishing in Oregon page. Simply click the county where you want to fish and you’ll jump to an article about the best fishing spots there.

Those county articles often include links to detailed articles about some of the best fishing spots. And where available, those location articles will include a trout-stocking schedule tailored just for that spot.

Another resource you might find handy right about now is our calendar pages that detail some of the best fishing by month across Oregon. Try our March and April calendars for upcoming fishing trips.


Our website includes information about catching many types of fish. So if you’d rather try to catch a bass, panfish, or even a salmon or steelhead, we have you covered. Use the search function at the top of this page to explore more.


Now it’s time to find some trout…"
