Description

A dam was constructed in 1940 at the spring-fed Ochoco Creek and was named after Isaac Walton. Walton Lake is a small lake that is surrounded by old growth ponderosa pine and mountain meadows. There is good fishing early in the spring for holdover 16-18" rainbow trout. ODFW stocks the lake with 8-10" rainbow trout mid-April, May, June, July, and Aug, although you may sometimes catch a nice 16 incher. The fishing is usually excellent to fair as anglers use flies, bait and lures, and fish from the bank as well as troll. Anglers who troll use small flashers and worms with great success, with bank angling using rooster tails, worms, and casting eggs with weights. The fly fishing use the small nymph patterns and search patterns using zugbugs, prince nymphs, and streamers. A day use area is located near the boat ramp, is a barrier free facility, and has reserved physical challenged parking space.
