The Lava Lakes were created by lava flows that trapped water from springs in the north east side of the lake. While the lava flows are clearly old, fishing is alive and well. The Lava Lakes are just a couple of the areas that hold Lake Trout in Central Oregon. If you haven't had a chance to go after large bull trout or mackinaw (lake trout), these lakes provides a great opportunity.
Be sure to check the Fishing Regulations and Emergency Rules for this area.
