Fishing Should be Good.

Applegate Reservoir - Jacksonville, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Trout anglers have reported success trolling a flasher/wedding ring/worm combination, or just a night crawler behind a flasher. Fishing should be good.

Applegate Lake has three boat ramps. The Hart-Tish Park ramp is closed until the concessionaire reopens later in the spring. As lake surface elevation levels have fluctuated the last few weeks from heavy inflows due to storms, the USFS Copper Boat Ramp has been usable one week and non-usable the next week. It’s best to check the most recent lake levels before planning on using the Copper Ramp, which is useable at more than 1932 feet lake surface elevation. There is no gate access to worry about here as it is open year-round. French Gulch remains accessible boat access despite surface elevation fluctuations. Surface temperatures are 44 degrees.
