Galesville has been stocked several times this year and should have lots of trout from previous stockings. Recent stockings have included “trophy trout” weighing in close to two pounds. In addition to trout, the reservoir was stocked with coho smolts until 2015. Anglers have reported recent catches of coho measuring up to 14-inches. Many people mistakenly think these fish are kokanee. The coho smolts should be adipose fin-clipped, and please remember to release the ones smaller 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.

Fishing for bass and other panfish should be decent. Good areas are near dead snags and the boat ramp.

Call 541-837-3302 for information on camping and boat launching conditions as the reservoir is well below normal.
