My name is Larry Hays my wife Dot and I own and operate Red Hills Lake.
Red Hills Lake is a 4 acre lake that we operate strictly as a Catch and Release, Fly Fishing program. The Fly Fishermen and Woman bring their own gear or they can rent it at the Lake and spend the day on Lake in their float tubes, pontoon boats, row boat, and prams.
Red Hills Lake’s stream begins on the mountain top above us where three large spring issue out and form three different streams that come together to.. form a single stream just before flowing into Red Hills Lake. This makes for a pristine lake ideal for Kamloops and Steelhead Trout; we have some trophy size Trout.
We stock this lake occasionally because occasionally an Osprey may drop in to take fish home to the little ones still in the nest.
Several years ago we built a spawning stream in the timber above the Lake. The stream runs down the mountain’s dense forest water shed cascading thru thirteen (13) small waterfalls to the spawning pools below it and on to the next waterfall. The spawning stream provides the lake with “Wild Trout” and “Wild Steelhead Trout”. The “Wild Trout” and Steelhead Trout” have learned to feed on the natural insects and biota the Lake so abundantly provides naturally.
Red Hills Lake is Located in the Red Hills of Dundee Oregon, just south west of Dundee Oregon; Oregon’s, world famous wine country. On one side of the lake we look North up into the vineyards above and the South side is heavily Timbered.
Some Fly Fishermen come from one of the local Bed and Breakfasts nearby early in the morning and spend a few hours on the Lake while the Trout are very active and then take their wife wine tasting for the afternoon and return in the evening to catch a few more big ones.
Many Fly Fishing Groups and Associations take the lake for the day and bring their Barbeque and picnic lunch and provide a meal for their group under our willow tree. Everyone gets a chance to catch trophy size trout. They are allowed to come as early as they want and leave as late as they want.
We have brochures and make them available to you upon request. Please contact us and we’ll get them to you.
