Mann Lake Recreation Site
Burns District | OR
Season Dates: 1/1 - 12/31
Located below the east face of Steens Mountain, Mann Lake attracts anglers as much for its remote, rugged splendor as for its abundant Lahontan cutthroat trout. These trout are supremely adapted to survive alkaline desert waters and without them fisheries like Mann Lake could not exist. The lake was named for an early rancher and has satisfied fishers for over forty years. Mann Lake is a favorite fishing spot for cutthroat trout. Visitors also enjoy camping, hiking, viewing wildlife such as pronghorn antelope, quail and chukar, and rockhounding for thunder eggs, agates, and other rocks and minerals in the area.
From Burns, Oregon, take State Highway 78 southeast for approximately 65 miles. Turn right onto the East Steens Road and travel southwest for approximately 24 miles until you reach the Mann Lake Recreation Site turn-off on your right.
