Winter Trout Fishing is On

Fish Lake - Lakecreek, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fish Lake is ice covered but provides a chance for some winter trout ice fishing. Ice is reportedly solid except for the middle of the lake where it is still a bit mushy. Anglers reportedly caught a few nice trout ice fishing over the last weekend. Water levels have rebounded nicely at Fish Lake and the lake is now 34 percent full.

Anglers must remember that Sno-Park permits are needed between Nov. 1 and April 30. Rainbow trout, brook trout, landlocked spring Chinook salmon and tiger trout are available. Anglers are encouraged to report catches of larger spring Chinook or tiger trout to the local ODFW district office at 541-826-8774. Tiger trout must be released unharmed.
