Hosmer lake is one of the best lakes to fish in Central Oregon. That said, it can also be the worst if you don't protect yourself. You'll see black bears quite frequently and will definitely need to bring bug-spray if you plan on being here for more than a few pictures. If you take a boat, make sure it's self propelled or uses an electric motor only. Hosmer lake is usually open between June and October, the remainder of the year it's locked in by deep snow.
Be sure to check the Fishing Regulations and Emergency Rules for this area.
