Algae Advisories Lifted At Fishing Lakes

Algae advisories have been lifted at Diamond and Lemolo Lakes in Oregon’s Cascades this week.

Both waters are known for their trout fishing.

“The lake is clear and beautiful; and the fishing remains very good,” says Rick Rockholt in an email sent to reporters this morning.

Diamond had fallen under an advisory July 15, but it was lifted yesterday, Aug. 3.

Lemolo’s, which took effect July 1, was lifted the day before.

Advisories remain in place at Willow Lake, Willow Creek Reservoir, Fish Lake and Fairview Lake, according to Oregon Public Health.

And a mosquito advisory remains at Diamond — Rockholt reports they’re “still out and hungry.”

As for the fishing, he says boat anglers are coming back to shore with limits of 13- to 19-inch rainbows that are biting a variety of baits.

“Trollers are using pulling flashers followed by a red or green wedding rings tipped with chunks  of colored  flatfish.  Late  evening  trollers  pulling dark  colored  flies  75  feet  behind  their  boats  are drawing heavy, rod slapping strikes,” he adds.
