Continues to Receive Regular Stockings

Henry Hagg Lake - Gaston, OR (Washington County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Hagg Lake continues to receive regular stockings of catchable-size trout including this week. The bite for other species (bass, panfish, etc.) should pick up as water temperatures warm. Shallow bays and creek arms should respond more quickly to sunny weather than the main lake.

One of western Oregon’s largest lakes, Henry Hagg is stocked regularly with trout throughout the spring and summer. The lake and lake park are currently open, although users are encouraged to check the Hagg Lake Park website, as conditions can change.

Located near Forest Grove, Hagg Lake is one of Oregon’s premier warmwater fishing locations, with populations of record-class largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, crappie and bullhead.

The lake is now open year-round and is stocked regularly throughout the spring and fall. Henry Hagg is a 1,110-acre lake waterbody located seven miles southwest of Forest Grove.

Maintained and operated by Washington County, the park features numerous picnic areas, two boat launching facilities, more than 15 miles of hiking trails, and observation decks for wildlife and bird watching.
