For the first time in decades, Diamond Lake is open to year-round fishing.

 

And outdoorsman Gary Lewis says this is a fun opportunity to try ice fishing.  "This is just something we don't do much of out here. You cut a little hole in the ice and you sit there and try to catch a fish through it. And why are they do this at Diamond Lake? Because there's a lot of fish in Diamond Lake. The people haven't been keeping as many fish, they've been letting them go and these fish are there to be caught. And so here's one way to do it: lets open the lake year-round and let people go fishing through the ice."

 

Lewis says Diamond Lake is known for having some of the biggest rainbow trout; and during the cold months  they are very flavorful.

 

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will hold classes on ice fishing in early February.  Contact ODFW for more information.
