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.
Fishing has been best using small midges under an indicator. We have also found stripping black leeches with an intermediate sinking line has been picking up some nice fish. Other than that, fishing near vegetation continues to be the most consistent. Expect kayak and paddle board hatches to happen as the Central Oregon weather turns into its usual summer time perfection.
