Oregon: Trout season at Lemolo and Diamond Lake opens Saturday

ROSEBURG, Ore. – Lemolo Reservoir and Diamond Lake trout anglers
can begin fishing this Saturday, April 23 when the season
officially opens.

Lemolo Reservoir has a good population of large brown trout that
should be ready to bite. The road has been plowed to the dam area
where there is open water. Currently, much of the reservoir is
still slushy and water levels are too low for boating, but there is
good bank access. Fish stocking will continue once the water level
rises.

Diamond Lake is currently a mix of ice, slush and snow, and
anglers are advised to be cautious. Those who choose to ice fish
are reminded that man-made ice holes can be no larger than 12
inches in diameter or length. Contact Diamond Lake Resort for
current ice conditions at 1-800-733-7593.

Anglers are reminded that starting May 1, the Diamond Lake
harvest limit increases to eight legal-sized trout per day with one
trout over 20 inches. That temporary rule is in effect until Oct.
27, 2011.

Many other area lakes and reservoirs have been stocked and
anglers can check the trout stocking schedule on the ODFW Web site
at www.dfw.state.or.us.
