This 9,000-acre lake just 12 miles west of Eugene is the Willamette Basin’s largest water body. All boat ramps are watered up but we recommend calling Lane County Parks (number below) to make sure they are open. The reservoir level is currently about 7 feet below full pool.

For local information regarding the lake and available boat ramps, contact the Lane County Parks Department at 541-682-2000.

Bass and crappie are available throughout the summer. Look for crappie along the weedy edges on the south side of the reservoir. The south shore around Perkins Peninsula as well as along the face of the dam are good spots.

There is good bank access at several rest stops and campgrounds, and three seasonal boat ramps.
