Osoyoos Lake
Located above Zosel Dam in Oroville, this lake spans the border with Canada.  Good smallmouth fishing spring through fall months.  Kokanee are also present, and in years of good returns, has a limited fishery for sockeye.  There are usually no fishing seasons for steelhead and chinook salmon in Osoyoos.  Best fished from a boat that can be launched at the state park at the south end of the lake.
