Received Its First Stocking About Three Weeks Ago

Lake Selmac - Selma, OR (Josephine County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Selmac Lake received its first stocking of 5,000 legal rainbow trout three weekends ago and is scheduled for another next week. There should still be rainbow trout out here, however they should be dispersed pretty well by now. Spring bass fishing can be very good out here with the onset of warming weather. It’s still cold, so don’t expect red hot conditions, but trolling or stripping a leach pattern along the weeds can be very good this time of year.

Water conditions should be very good.

Lake Selmac facilities operated by Josephine County Parks are currently open. More information about Josephine County Parks can be found on their website.

Lake Selmac also has a recent non-native introduction of a bryozoan. Bryozoans are mossy like creatures that usually help to clean water and that are not typically harmful to humans.  However, this particular species has been known to harbor a disease that can be transmitted to salmon and steelhead. Please drain and dry your vessel if you are going to another water body and help stop Oregon’s aquatic hitchhikers!

Anglers are reminded that only 1 bass may be harvested from Selmac per day.
