Just on the westward slope of Mt. Bachelor, Hosmer has a picturesque backdrop. Not that the large brook trout, rainbows or cutthroat aren’t reason enough to enjoy time on Hosmer. This lake is a fly fishing only lake that does not allow the use of gas motors, which makes this lake even more appealing. The word is out on how beautiful this setting is, so expect to see a few kayakers and stand up paddle boarders. This lake is easily fished out of float tubes, however, drift boats are our preferred method to cover water.
Hosmer is fishing relatively well this late in the season. The brook trout are in pre-spawn mode and are aggressive so bring some small buggers, baitfish patterns, and leeches. Midges under an indicator are doing pretty well as well, and you can try hanging a balanced leech if fishing slows down. This is the tail end of the season out here so get it while it's good.
