Falcon Lake

Falcon Lake is every angler’s natural paradise in a secluded mountainous region of Oregon. This magnificent basin, surrounded by a luscious forest on the north and overlooking a distant mountain range on the south, opens its hidden wonders to the daring explorer. Find a broken wooden bridge, enigmatically hidden in the deep foliage or enjoy a scenic cliff with a beautiful waterfall overhanging the lake. Here, the crisp autumn breeze tingles the senses as the vibrant reds, greens and yellows of the deep foliage pose a soothing reminder that summer has moved on, the fall is here and that this is just the time and place to go after some Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout and Cutthroat Trout. Bluegill and Smallmouth Bass are to be found here as well. Enjoy the captivating fishing locations varying in terrain from shallow rocky shores with crystal clear water to deep, steep-sided banks obstructed by logs and debris. Once here, you’ll never want to leave.

Starting points

The Mountain Watcher
The Mountain Watcher

This splendid moderately shallow fishing spot with a magnificent view of the distant mountain range is perfect not just for watching the sunrise, but also abundant in dark-green weedy vegetation which is a favorite hideout for Smallmouth Bass. This marvelous spot is also perfect for longer casts – from here you can reach one of the most interesting parts of the lake, the aquamarine sanctuary to Brown Trout.

Trout Lair
Trout Lair

Step into a tranquil world of solitude as you make your way to this special fishing spot in the very North of Falcon Lake, surrounded by dense forests. Breathe in the smell of damp leaves and bark as you make your cast to outmaneuver thick brush and weed beds and reach the shelter of savvy trout. Make sure to have your tackle for long distance casts at hand - quite a way offshore is the deepest part of Falcon Lake, a cold and abysmal Trout Lair. This is a genuinely unchartered territory with varying and unpredictable bottom and underwater terrain, so using strong tackle would definitely be a good idea if your aspirations go as high as landing a huge Trophy Rainbow Trout.

Waterfall Cascade
Waterfall Cascade

This southernmost point of Falcon Lake is a marvelous fishing spot overlooking the lusciously colorful forest on the opposite bank. This secluded location with large boulders covered in green juicy moss is right next to a gently cascading waterfall that sparkles in rays of the setting sun. The rocky shallow bank with cool, crystal clear water and some rocks just further offshore is natural home to Cutthroat Trout. So put on your waders (wellie boots) and let the fishing begin!
