Sooo yes for fishing Diamond Lake. State of Oregon takes VERY good care of this body of water. Lots of tent/cabin spots right next (just off) the Lake. Last estimate (and this is a pretty good sized lake, but not huge) there were (from today's State fishing report) "300,000 catchable trout up to 10 pounds."

DL is about 60 miles (memory here only) east of Roseburg, Oregon and freezes up every winter (you can fish through the ice, but I wouldn't). Ice out and its a great place to use a float tube, boat, etc. I think the normal trout limit is five fish, here it's eight.

Edit: Several years back the lake got over run with Tue Chubs (what ever the heck they are, or how they got there) and Rotoned the entire lake and killed everything. Couple of years rest (lake is snow feed) and restocked with fingerlings. Without competition they grew close to an inch per month.
