I was wondering if you could tell me the best area to visit mid-July for fishing. I have two boys ages 13 and 15 that love to fish. -Tammy H.

Here are a few great options around the state to visit with good fishing for the boys:

In southern Oregon, Diamond Lake is nice and you can also visit Crater Lake.

On the central/southern Oregon Coast check out Siltcoos Lake.

On the northern Oregon Coast, Fort Stevens State Park is a great option.  It’s rich in history; there is the beach and a lake for shore fishing for bass, trout and perch.

In Central Oregon, check out Crane Prairie Reservoir or Prineville Reservoir.
