Diamond Lake anglers can help improve fisheryAnglers harvesting large rainbow trout at Diamond Lake are asked to provide ODFW with scale samples to help inform future fish stocking. Through Labor Day weekend, ODFW will collect scale samples from harvested rainbow trout over 20 inches.

Combined with fish health condition, water quality factors, and benthic macroinvertebrate trends, this data will help biologists maintain a quality fishery and help inform potential future management decisions.

ODFW is requesting scale samples from harvested rainbow trout longer than 20 inches along with length measured from snout to the center of the fork in the tail. Instructions and envelopes for the sample and information are at Diamond Lake Marina. Angling at Diamond Lake is good and the north and south boat ramps are open, however, Diamond Lake campgrounds remain closed.
