My bad, I guess I should get acquainted with the new site. Diamond Lake is one of those lakes that is just far enough to warrant spending the night. I will be at Odell for opening day, good luck and post some pictures of those ten pounders.Oh, I thought this was the "Diamond Lake" "Southwest Oregon"
am taking a family vacation this summer in august and considering odell or diamond lake... can anyone tell me how the fishing is at these two lakes in mid-late august? the timing isnt the best but im low on the totem pole and that was really my only option for a summer vacation. stayed 3 nights at diamond on honey moon last summer and really loved it, but didnt see too much fishing going on and that was late july... any suggestions out there? thanks allray:My bad, I guess I should get acquainted with the new site.

I heard a rumor going around in my little world that the Chubs are back...tell me that it isn't true .......please tell me.This past weekend the highway from Roseburg was closed due to a fire, and I thought that it was a perfect time to go and take in all that wonderful fishing and scenery, so I did on Sunday. Thare was very little boat traffic in the morning and we fished the south end. Trolled mostly, and because we are getting used to what works there, we tried a lot of good stuff, and prevailed with a few nice fattys, the best of which was 17 inches and weighed in at 3 pounds. We might get in one more trip before winter.
The people dying is news to me, do you have a link to that?Maybe it was clean, but in the news, a family was swimming in it not knowing about this "poison" and they died like 2 weeks later....... Even the people there said not to eat the fish. And signs did too.
I don't think that Diamond had any problems with toxic algae. The water there is so clear that you can see all the way to the bottom even at 18 ft.Awesome looking dinner! Glad to hear the good news about Diamond. Did you see much in the way of algae? Guess everyone needs to decide for themselves whether to fish it or not. How was the above water population? I hear it gets a bit crowded. Congrats on a great day on the water!
