Road Closed for Season!

Unless you have a snowmobile or strong legs and a pair of Cross Country skies, Hosmer is done for the year. It was a special season up there with an astonishing number of really good fish caught. The cutties and 'bows were a pleasant surprise. 2014 should be all-time!

Hosmer Report

    Hosmer would be a good choice late in the season before snow takes over the Cascade Lakes Hwy. Hosmer can fish good late. Stripping buggers and streamers can make for some awesome action. Get up there before it is too late.

Hosmer Report

   Hosmer Lake has probably seen some cold weather already now that Mt. Bachelor is covered in a thin blanket of snow. Streamers and buggers can produce some awesome action for Brook Trout and Atlantic Salmon. Shouldn't be too many stand up paddle boarders this time of year!

Fishin @ Hosmer

   All the reports that have been coming from Hosmer have been excellent. Fall can be the prime time to up there! Streamers and buggers can produce some awesome action for Brookies and Atlantic Salmon. Sometimes throwing crazy bright colored streamers and buggers can be beneficial for success. Floating lines and Intermediate sinking lines are perfect. There should still be some decent action for dries. Callibaetis, Caddis, and Damsels are the typical patterns for up there. The Purple Haze can be a good searching dry pattern. Chironomids can also be a good technique to try.

Hosmer Report

   It doesn't get much better than being out on Hosmer lake during a summer evening. Hosmer has been fishing so solid. Every report I have been hearing from there has been promising. The usual callibaetis/damsel dry this time of year can make for some awesome dry fly fishing. Crystal buggers in crazy colors can also do some damage. Yellow, white, and red can entice those Atlantic salmon to eat. If you want a little more solitude, focus on fishing early morning's or late evening's to avoid the kayak and stand up paddle boarders. The word on the street is that Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife stocked some cutthroat in Hosmer. That's a pretty cool opportunity if you can catch a Cutthroat, brook trout, and atlantic salmon in the same day. And yes that's a challenge so let us know if you can pull it off!

Hosmer Lake

HOSMER LAKE OREGON: Hosmer Lake Oregon is one of the most beautiful places for central Oregon fly fishing. Hosmer Lake is really two fly fishing lakes Read More... that are joined by a long weed-lined channel. There are, nearly, 160 acres of water here that are surrounded by marshland and mountains! Only 8’-10’ in depth at its deepest point, it produces some of the most fun (read challenging) central Oregon fly fishing. Catch and release is mandatory for any Atlantic Salmon that are fooled into striking your fly, but up to 5 Brook Trout per day may be kept if they are over 8". Hosmer Lake Oregon offers good central Oregon fly fishing throughout the season with some excellent hatches of Midges, Callibaetis Mayflies, Traveling Sedges (Caddis that run across the lake on the surface tension of the water), and Damsel Flies. There are, also, Water Boatman and Scuds available on this fly fishing lake. Floating lines and Intermediate (full sink) lines are among the favorites on this fly fishing only lake. It is helpful to use fluorocarbon leaders and tippet material in an attempt to throw off these wiley fishes. Listed among Oregon’s quiet waters, this fly fishing lake sees lots of canoes/kayaks and is ideal for drift boats, float tubes and pontoon boats for accessing the prime central Oregon fly fishing water. Gasoline engines ARE NOT permitted on this lake and electric motors may be used to travel from point A to point B but must be OFF when one is fly fishing. There are an amazing number of birds and animals here on Hosmer Lake Oregon. Bitterns, Ducks, Geese, Ospreys, Bald Eagles, Deer, Red-Winged Blackbirds and many others. In the early season, it is the wise person who remembers to bring his/her Mosquito repellant as the little monsters can be voracious up here and are not shy about coming out over the fly fishing lakes. While there are good campsites and outhouses here, there is no drinking water or shower facilities, plan ahead. Hosmer Lake Oregon, can be an almost magical place, but it does not give up its secrets easily.
