East Side Update

Fall River:  There is a real issue here.  Since they stopped raising the stockers at the hatchery and are importing from Wizard Falls on the Metolius the fish seem to “disappear”.  Hatchery guys I talked to say they have recorded stockers at the mouth of the Deschutes within a week of introduction.  They is very little in the way of natives in Fall River any more.  Some say some Brookies and Browns up towards the headwaters, but I haven’t seen any.

Century Dive Lakes: Century Dive open to the gate just past Lava Lake turn off coming from the south.  All Crane and Wickiup launches are open.  Davis Lake is as full as I’ve seen it in a while.  One trip there had me blown off the water.  Best hit the lakes in the AM.  The wind has been coming up daily around 2:00 – 3:00.
North Twin still waiting for initial stocking after they Rotenoned it last fall to eliminate bull heads illegally introduced.  Hatchery guys told me they will re-stock with Oak Springs trout from the Deschutes hatchery.  South Twin should be good for stocked fish.

East and Paulina Lakes not open.  They are shooting for Memorial Day
