June 7 free fishing event at Lost Creek Reservoir cancelled

June 4, 2014

CENTRAL POINT, Ore. – A Free Fishing Weekend event scheduled for this Saturday on Lost Creek Reservoir has been cancelled due to a harmful algae bloom on the lake.

The event, sponsored by Oregon State Parks, was cancelled when the Oregon Health Authority on Tuesday issued a health advisory due to high levels of blue-green algae in the lake.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will move forward with plans to stock the lake in anticipation of Free Fishing Weekend June 7-8.

​According to the OHA, people visiting the lake should try to minimize contact with the water but can continue to enjoy activities such as fishing, camping, hiking, picnicking and bird watching.

For more information about the advisory and appropriate precautions, visit the OHA web site.
