Butterfield Lake

Butterfield Lake near Riley Ranch campground was also stocked once in March and once in April, and may receive another stocking in summer if a scheduled lake has poor water quality, said Mike Gray, ODFW fish biologist.

“If that happens, I sometimes have a load of trout to re-route, and Butterfield is one of the target lakes for those because the water quality stays good through the summer,” Gray said.
