Lost Creek will be the main focus for lake anglers through the rest of the fall and winter as many of the higher lakes become inaccessible due to snow or still low water levels. The Takelma ramp is currently the only ramp open and usable. This weekend should see very nice weather for trout anglers with temperatures in the mid 50s and light winds.

Lost Creek Reservoir was last stocked with legal and trophy trout in late September and early October. Trolling a wedding ring tipped with a nightcrawler and sliding egg sinker above your wedding ring leader is a very effective setup here. Also, don’t be afraid to row if you have a small boat to change up the presentation. PowerBait fished from the shore near the dam and boat ramp tend to do well also. Fishing up the Lost Creek arm back down toward the Peninsula toward Takelma ramp is also a good line.

Lost Creek Reservoir rose about 5 feet since last week and inflow is around 1700 cfs with 1100 being discharged. The lake is about 43 percent full with an elevation of 1,895.28 feet.

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.
