Fishing Waldo Lake

Waldo lake is the second deepest lake in Oregon and one of the clearest lakes you can find. While these factors are great for the eye, they make it tough to fish. The two primary species you can fish for are brook trout and kokanee which natually spread throughout the lake making them difficult to target.


Waldo Lake Fishing Regulations

  • 5 trout per day, 2 daily limits in possession
  • Kokanee count towards your daily bag limit of trout

Be sure to check the Fishing Regulations and Emergency Rules  for this area.
