Laurance Lake in Hood River County, Oregon
Laurance is potentially the best fly
fishing lake in the Mount Hood region because angling
regulations don't allow the killing of wild fish. Wild Bull Trout, wild
rainbows and wild cutthroats inhabit this reservoir and provide an
interesting mix in fishing. Average fish are less than 15", but occasionally
fish of over 20" may be encountered. The best part of this lake for fly
fishing is often around the mouths of tributary streams although near the
dam can also be very productive. If this lake has a downside, it is that the
Columbia Gorge wind can blow very strongly here.
