Rock Creek Reservoir is
one of the first of Northern Oregon's lakes to turn on in early
spring. Its comparatively low elevation and location in the rain
shadow of the Cascade Mountains gives it a moderate climate. The
most prolific fishery is for stocker rainbows, but some very large brood
trout are added and their seems to be some wild trout too. Bass
and blue gills add to the excitement.
