Central Oregon Trout Fishing – Antelope Flat Reservoir

Some of Oregon’s fastest-growing rainbow trout reside in Antelope Flat Reservoir. Somewhat overlooked because of such nearby larger fishing spots like Ochoco and Prineville Reservoir, Antelope Flat was treated to get rid of a population of stunted bullhead catfish. When the reservoir was treated, rainbows to at least 30-inches in length were collateral casualties. The trout replanted into the 170 acre reservoir have been growing like crazy and fish weighing more than five pounds will be pulled from the reservoir in 2013 – or possibly before since the reservoir is open to fishing the year round.
