Sneaky Pete Hits Diamond Lake Again

boat launching

Diamond Lake is windy but fishable. Rented boat at marina. Fished damsels and callinaetis nymphs in 40′ weeds. Rainbow trout looked a lot like black rockfish, lingcod, and blue rockfish. Must be a hatchery breeding anomaly. Note to self, call ODFW to complain.

Time to head for marina to resupply with 15 lb Maxima leader and ice cream bars.

Note to self #2, Echo 3 SW nine and 10 wt fly rods make perfect match to these monster Diamond lake ‘Bows.

    I have surfed there at Diamond Lake many many times. Beautiful spot–looks like the swell’s Mackin’ by your photos.

    well it took you long enough… thank god… I know a spot we should chat about down south off the shore totally protected and you could launch a drift boat there… Probably RR’s boat! Nice work

    I had some good fishing there in 1963, we launched at Cape Daimond Lake and fished North of the Hay Stack.

    Glad you didn’t head across the lake to the resort for a cup of coffee !
