The reservoir is 42 percent full with an elevation of 1,935.2 ft.

The USFS has closed Hart-tish boat ramp for the season due to low water. French Gulch Boat ramp and Copper are still open, but facilities may be limited. Plan ahead.

Good tactics for trout at Applegate lake include trolling a wedding ring lure or Little Cleo. All visitors should practice leave no trace tactics and pack out their own trash if facilities are closed.

Nearby is Squaw Lakes. This quaint, but popular weekend destination is a non-motorized boating waterway. It has a large population of illegally introduced yellow perch. Like many local lakes where these have been illegally introduced, perch tend to overpopulate and stunt themselves. Anglers can easily catch these fish from shore and are encouraged to harvest as many as possible.
