Rainbow Trout Fishing is Back! 

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has increased the stocking levels for this season to 300,000 fish. 

The limit at Diamond Lake is 5 trout per day, of which one can be 20 inches or more.  The 2013 season produced a 12 plus pound trout and lots of 4 and 5 pounders. Last year there were quite a few 4 plus pounders caught.
