Best Bet For Fishing is where Quartzville Creek enters the reservoir
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
The water level in the reservoir has risen due to recent rains and Thistle Creek boat ramp is back in the water and usable, at least for a short while. For the latest information on water levels at Green Peter Reservoir check with the Army Corps of Engineers’ website for more information. In general, however, reservoir levels will continue to drop throughout the early winter and will begin refilling starting Feb. 1.
This large reservoir gets stocked annually with 20,000 hatchery trout. Look for them in cooler, deeper water and around ledges, drop-offs and underwater structure. Smallmouth bass also like to hang out near underwater structure and tend to be found in shallower water. Also look for them near rocky outcrops.
Kokanee, trout and smallmouth bass are all fishable in this reservoir, although adult kokanee have already left the reservoir to spawn in the creeks. Anglers may keep up to 25 kokanee per day in addition to the 5-trout limit.
Best bet for anglers without a boat is to drive to the top of the reservoir where Quartzville Creek enters the reservoir. Large trout will sometimes forage where the river brings in food swept down from upstream.
