Crater Lake – Fishing Spots Nearby & Fishing Updates


What do fishermen appreciate? Quiet, a serious lack of crowds, no speedboats, and big hungry fish. Serene water abounds in the upper Klamath Lake, Agency Lake, and the Wood and Williamson Rivers. The entire region around Crater lake is known for its famous trophy Redband trout often found at 8 pounds or more.

During the warmest water season, the fish are found more often in the cooler waters of Pelican Bay, Agency Lake, the Williamson and Wood Rivers, and in the spring-fed marshy creek channels of the Upper Klamath National Wildlife Refuge.

Yellow perch also move into these creek channels and provide great sports fishing for young and old.

Fourmile Lake, Lake of the Woods, Fish Lake, and other wilderness Lakes offer great fishing opportunities as well. Even Crater Lake National Park allows fishing for those who brave the walk down and back. Crater Lake has separate fishing regulations for the sporting enthusiasts so give the Park a call at 541-594-3100 and set up your trip today!
