We're brand new inside! The
new owners of the marina and concessions have
completely gone through the facility and
everything is newly decorated. It looks great
and feels more like a fishing lodge. Come in
soon and try the new restaurant. We're looking
forward to meeting you.
Come to Pelton
Park store & Marina soon
and meet the new owner/operators.

custom wood decor throughout.

best camera. In this part of Central Oregon
there is beauty everywhere you look.
Fishing Report 6-26-2011
Fishing has been
very good. Lake Simtustus fishing is consistent and morning and evening
bites have been very productive. Trolling is the most effective method. The
majority of the catch has been Steelhead & Rainbow trout. Some large Bull
Trout (Dolly Varden) have been caught and also larger Brown Trout. Kokanee
have always been a big favorite for Lake Simtustus fishing and this year is
no exception. The numbers of Kokanee being caught are lower than normal but
the sizes are larger. Trolling with flashers, a wedding ring, snubber and a
little white corn on the hook is the most popular method for Lake Simtustus
Photo above is Mike Miller with an 8 lb. Brown Trout
he caught on Lake Simtustus this week.
The campground is run by
and has lots of cozy spaces and you can walk
from any of them to our store & marina.
Lake Simtustus is known
for great fishing. The water is actually the
Deschutes river as it flows down from Lake
Billy Chinook. It's great for boating,
fishing swimming water skiing and just plain
viewing and relaxing.
