In addition to trout, the reservoir has also been stocked with coho smolts for the last few years and there have been reports of them being caught in good numbers on the lake. Many people mistakenly think these fish are kokanee. The coho smolts should be adipose fin-clipped, and please remember to release the ones less than 8-inches long.

In Galesville Reservoir, all landlocked salmon are considered trout and are part of the five-per-day trout limit, with only one trout over 20-inches long allowed for harvest. Galesville has been stocked with about 8,000 legal-size trout and 50 five-pound trophy trout this year.

Fishing for bass and other panfish with the use of bait and artificial lures such as swimbaits around structure should give positive results but will slow with dropping temperatures. Call 541-837-3302 for information on camping and boat launching conditions.
