Anglers Reporting Good Success By The Marina

Lost Creek Lake - Trail, OR (Jackson County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The Takelma ramp is currently the only ramp open and usable. There’s still a few more days of nice weather before we enter another wet patch. Look for members of Crater Bass this weekend helping to plant willows along the banks of Lost Creek near the flats SW of the marina. Over the past 15-20 years, the Crater Bass Club and ODFW have established great warmwater habitat in the drawdown zone of Lost Creek lake, that’s also used as habitat for neotropic songbirds! This also helps improve water quality!

Anglers have reported good success over by the marina, still fishing off the bottom with a suspended nightcrawler. A small piece of marshmallow works well to float your nightcrawler just enough. PowerBait also will work. Trolling a wedding ring tipped with a nightcrawler and sliding egg sinker above your wedding ring leader is a very effective setup here as well. 

The lake is over 60 percent full with an elevation and 44-degree surface temperature.

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.
