Conditions : DIAMOND LAKE: Over 25,000 legal and trophy-sized trout were stocked recently to improve the summer fishery. In 2013, Diamond Lake was stocked with about 206,000 trout -- 170,000 fingerlings in spring, 16,000 legals in July and 20,000 sub-legals in the fall -- compared to 166,000 in 2012. For 2014, ODFW has moved to a stabilized stocking of 275,000 fingerlings that were stocked in June. These fish will start reaching legal-size in late August, early September and should have a really positive impact on fishing in 2015. Anglers should be aware that algae is currently blooming at both Diamond Lake and Lemolo. Testing done last week by the U.S. Forest Service was benign, however caution signs with general information on algae blooms are posted.

Diamond Lake still produces some nice large fish. In the past month a 25-inch fish was caught during Free Fishing Day, a 21-inch fish was caught at the Blackbird Derby, and ODFW captured and released 6 trout between 18 – 25 inches while monitoring the lake.

About: - Diamond Lake is located just 5 miles north of Crater Lake National Park on highway 138. Since the early 1900s, Diamond Lake has been the premier trout fishing destination for generations of Oregonians. An infestation of tui chub in the early 1950s put a damper on angling for several years until the lake was successfully treated with the fish toxicant rotenone in 1954 and restocked with rainbow trout. Nearly 40 years of excellent fishing and water quality followed until chub were again discovered in the lake in 1992.

Boat launches: 5 public boat ramps are located on Diamond Lake. The North End Boat Ramp has a concrete jetty for shoreline fishing and is designed for persons with disabilities. Three fish cleaning stations are available.

  • Rainbow Trout

Misc Info: - Starting May 1, anglers can keep more trout from Diamond Lake for the 2011 season. An ODFW temporary rule May 1 – Oct. 27 lets anglers keep eight legal-sized trout per day instead of five. The rule still allows just one trout over 20 inches.
