Summary[edit]

Description

Lake Creek Falls, near Triangle Lake, Oregon, has been a popular swimming and picnicking spot since the early 1900's. However, swimming in the swift, shallow water near the falls can be extremely risky. Visitors are encouraged to use extreme caution at all times.

In the fall and winter, this site is a great spot to catch the amazing show put on by Coho and Chinook salmon and steelhead as they migrate upstream to spawn. In 1989, the Bureau of Land Management built a concrete fish ladder at this site, opening up more than 110 miles of stream habitat to fish.
