Some of the finest fishing in Oregon can be found in the forests surrounding Oakridge and Westfir. Brown and rainbow trout, croppie, salmon, and cat fish can be caught, depending on where you are and the season. The Willamette River and Salmon Creek provide relaxing locations for river fly fishing, and if you prefer dipping your line in a lake you'll find many in the area that will entice you. Of special note is Waldo Lake, about 35 miles east of Oakridge off Highway 58, one of the purest lakes in the country. It is so pure, in fact, that gas powered motorized boats, generators and chainsaws are prohibited. Avoid Waldo Lake in early summer though, as it swarms with mosquito’s.
