Applegate Reservoir Fishing Report

Applegate Reservoir - Jacksonville, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Applegate Reservoir is stocked with rainbow trout and will be receiving an additional 1,000 large 12- to 14-inch fish for this weekend Surface temperatures have cooled to 54 degrees so anglers should be able to fish all day. There is very low fishing pressure up here, but recent reports indicate that trout fishing has been good for anglers trolling with wedding ring/flasher combos.

The reservoir is quickly dropping down to the flood control pool. At current water levels the only boat access should be the low water ramp at French Gulch, but mud can be a problem in early fall at this location. Hart-tish is closed for the winter.
