The lake received an additional 1,500 trophy trout this fall. When local rivers are too high and muddy to fish, anglers may want to do some trout fishing. There are still some tagged trout in the lake and anglers are encouraged to report any tagged trout they catch.

ODFW is implementing a tag reward trout study for 2017. Anglers will be asked to report tagged trout that are caught. Some of the tags will be worth money. Anglers can report the tag number to the ODFW Gold Beach office (541) 247-7605 or on ODFW’s website. Tags can be cut off or pulled out of fish being released. The study is an effort by ODFW to see what size of trout contribute to the fishery the best. Garrison is always an excellent trout fishery, and this study will only help improve it.
