Fish Lake Report

Fish Lake - Lakecreek, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Expect rain and snow at Fish Lake this weekend, the roads are fairly clear but be cautious and watch for ice. The lake may have patches of ice. Try trolling a green wedding ring/worm, or small lures such as spoons or rooster-tails. Fly-fishing with brightly colored, flashy streamers can also be fun here.

Fish Lake is now 39 percent full and should continue to fill. The resort ramp is usable for smaller trailered boats, but the resort is now on winter hours and is only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Smaller pontoons or kayaks also can be launched from the Forest Service boat ramp, and smaller trailered boats now may be able to be launched here as well, but be careful for submerged tree stumps.

Tiger trout, Chinook salmon, brook trout, and larger rainbow trout are available. Remember that tiger trout must be immediately released unharmed. Anglers are encouraged to report their catch of tiger trout to fish district staff at 541-826-8774.
