Applegate Reservoir Fishing Report

Applegate Reservoir - Jacksonville, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Applegate Reservoir was stocked last week with another 8,000 legal-sized rainbow trout. Trout fishing has been very good. In addition to the legal-sized trout, anglers are catching some larger rainbows and Chinook. Boaters have been doing well by trolling a fly, lure, or wedding ring/bait combination. Those wanting to specifically target the Chinook salmon in the lake should troll spoons or spinner at a depth of 20 to 50 feet. Bank anglers can catch fish by casting lures or still-fishing with bait. Fishing for largemouth bass and smallmouth bass should be good. Look for the largemouth around the flooded willows, and the smallmouth along the rocky shorelines. The lake is 98 percent full. The Hart-Tish, Copper, and French Gulch boat ramps are available. Applegate Reservoir should be an excellent destination for those planning to fish over the Free Fishing Weekend.
