Was last stocked the week of Sept. 12 with 2,000 hatchery rainbow trout. Bait can be used from April 22 Oct. 31, but beginning Nov. 1, anglers may only use lures and artificial flies.The Leaburg Dam fish counts are a great spring salmon and summer steelhead resource, and information is back online. Counts are updated by the Corps of Engineers weekly. These resources are most useful to anglers from May September.All non-adipose fin-clipped trout must be released unharmed. Check page 46 of the 2022 Sport Fishing Regulations for bait restrictions in the segment you plan to fish. Beginning Nov. 1, anglers may only use lures and artificial flies.The lower McKenzie River is open to retention of adipose fin-clipped salmon and steelhead and non-adipose fin-clipped steelhead greater than 24 inches long. A Columbia River Basin Endorsement is required for anglers targeting salmon and steelhead in the McKenzie.
