Crater Lake Fishing

 

Crater Lake National Park is known for its iconic deep blue water, majestic Wizard Island and a volcanic legacy rich with physical and cultural history. Visitors come from around the world to explore its beautiful landscape. ROE will help you explore it and FISH IT!
ROE has developed a program for fishing this deep blue lake. ROE guides lead fisherman on a hike to the lake level where our guests will fish for kokanee and trout in this clear blue water. Most days we take a boat ride out to Wizard Island and fish its surrounding waters. Occasionally the island remains shrouded in mist and weather conditions won’t allow access. Crater Lake is ever the adventure and we seek the end of the rainbow anyway. (Well, really the mouth of the rainbow)
Rainbow trout were introduced into the lake as early as 1888. Other species introduced into the lake are the Coho, or silver salmon; the landlocked sockeye salmon (kokanee); the German brown trout; the brook trout; cutthroat trout; and steelhead trout. Only the rainbow and kokanee have been able to adapt and survive in the lake’s environment. And survive they have! There’s some biggies in there!
While on Wizard Island we fish Cleetwood Pool, Emerald Pool and Rocky Pool. These Pools, named by much earlier fisherman than us, were created by the flow of volcanic material and are just a bit warmer than most of the lake.
Fishing the depths of Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the United States, surrounded by National Park lands at the top of the caldera is pretty fantastic. It’s hard to say goodbye each time we hike back up the Cleetwood Trail and leave the caldera behind.
