Hyatt Lake Fishing Report

Hyatt Lake - Ashland, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff


Expect rain and snow at Hyatt Lake over the weekend, the roads are fairly clear but may have ice, use caution while driving. Hyatt Lake has some patches of ice on it and is 38 percent full. 

The boat ramps are not accessible at this time as the campground is closed for the season. It is deep enough around the dam to fish from the shore, and this can be a good option for still-fishing bait.

Hyatt Lake has lots weeds, which can be problematic for fishing. Now that the water is low, anglers may have to adjust their techniques. There are some large, fat and healthy trout in Hyatt that are likely to bite on bait fished from the bottom or by trolling bait from an inflatable or kayak.

Bass are also available at Hyatt, but will be slow to bite now that the weather has cooled. 

Hyatt Lake has been stocked with our annual “fall fingerlings.” These trout are not of legal size, but should be by the spring, please be cognizant of the size of fish you are catching and gently release these smaller fish to grow until next year.
