Just Received It's Fall Stocking

Lost Creek Reservoir - Trail, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Due to current fire activity and fire camps, the US Army Corps of Engineers has closed all Lost Creek Lake and Elk Creek recreation areas. Joseph State Park is also temporarily closed due to nearby wildfire activity.  

The boat ramp at Lost Creek Marina and Joseph Steward Park had already become unusable due to the dropping elevation of Lost Creek Lake.  For more information, please visit the Lost Creek Lake Facebook page or the Oregon State Parks website. Takelma boat ramp is usable, but closed due to current fire conditions.  

Lost Creek Lake just received its fall stocking, slightly ahead of normal due to contingency planning at Cole Rivers Hatchery. Once recreation areas are open again, fishing should be good in Lost Creek Lake.  

Lost Creek Reservoir is 39 percent full and 1808.4feet elevation, and surface temperatures have dropped significantly with the smoke, going from 75 degrees a week ago to 66 degrees on Sept. 15. Water visibility is clear.

Anglers can get the latest surface temperatures by calling the US Army Corps Lost Creek Lake and Applegate Reservoir projects information line at 1-800-472-2434.
