Odell Lake (Jetty area)

Odell Lake is one of the blue giants of the Deschutes National Forest. This large lake is 3562 acres, 6 miles long and 1 1/2 miles wide, and reaches a depth of 282 ft. The average depth is 132 ft. which makes it ideal habitat for a fishing shoot. The lake is stocked with trout (Mackinaw) and bull trout. Rainbow trout, kokanee salmon and whitefish also naturally reproduce in this lake. Odell Lake is managed as a trophy lake trout fishery. 

The Odell Lake jetty is a large area underneath the resort and would be excellent for recreational shoots with a boating or fishing aspect.  Or, for atmospheric projects such as horror films.   The resort has a restaurant and cabins available for use as production offices and sleeping. 

Odell Lake also has beautiful campsites found in thick forests and some excellent wind surfing. Boats are the most effective way to fish this lake but be aware of afternoon winds; the lake can get dangerously rough.

Motorized and non-motorized boats are allowed on this body of water.
