Oregon's Hike-in Lakes

Not all of Oregon’s high elevation lakes support fish populations. To help create fisheries in some of these off-road areas, ODFW stocks hundreds of lakes every two years with brook, rainbow and cutthroat trout. Here are their locations.

North Willamette District

June 21, 2019

Includes lakes in the Mt. Hood National Forest and the Bull of the Woods and Roaring River wilderness areas.

To help create fisheries in Oregon's back country, off-road areas, ODFW stocks 59 lakes in the North Willamette District every two years with brook, rainbow and cutthroat trout.

High elevation hike-in lakes stocked every two years

Every two years, ODFW plants over 300,000 fingerling fish in hundreds of Cascade lakes from Mt. Hood to Klamath Falls. Additional fish are dropped in the alpine lakes of the Eagle Cap Wilderness in the Wallowa Mountains -- including Lake Legore, Oregon’s highest lake at 8,950 feet.

The 2.5- to 3-inch fingerlings are transported mostly by helicopter in a custom made shuttle carrying 30 individual canisters that hold a few gallons of water and up to 1,000 fingerling trout. The canisters are opened individually by remote control from inside the cockpit while the chopper hovers over a lake. Return to Mile by Mile.Lakes of the Mt Hood National Forest
Glistening waters of over 150 lakes lie within the timbered boundaries of the Mt. Hood National Forest. Some of these lakes are easily accessible by car. Others bury themselves in the high country. On foot, or by horse, the sportsman must forge his way into these lakes to enjoy the solitude of the wilderness.
Most of these lakes were void of fish populations before the Department of Fish and Wildlife began an extensive stocking program. Heavily fished lakes are stocked annually, while more isolated lakes are planted every two or three years. Only those lakes that are fishable, either through stocking or natural reproduction, have been included in this guide. There are a number of other lakes which recreationists can enjoy, that do not contain game fish.
Fish populations and “fishing” is managed by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. They develop and implement the rules governing fishing in the Mt. Hood. National Forest, including all required fishing licenses, tags and permits. Because fishing regulations and season dates may change, it is best to consult the current Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations booklet, available at most sporting goods stores.
Please be careful with matches, leave a dead fire, a clean camp, and be familiar with angling limits and regulations.
Many maps used to locate lakes in the forest are divided into Township, Range, and Section grids. This guide uses the grid system for locating and identifying lakes.
Land maps are divided into 6-mile squares called TOWNSHIPS. Lines running east and west are Township lines. Lines running north and south are RANGE lines. These lines form 1-mile squares called SECTIONS. There are 36 Sections within one Township. Section #1 is always in the NE corner of the Township. Sections are numbered east to west, then west to east, until reaching the last Section in the SE corner, #36
